Columbine is a staple in the spring garden. They attract pollinators with their bonnet shaped blooms. Winky Purple and white Columbine is an extremely compact version of the old time favorite. This herbaceous perennial may be shorter than other varieties, but it easily blooms twices as heavily. The shorter height is ideal to plant in containers as a filler or in groups at the front of a garden bed. The dark purple, spurred sepals surround a delicately white edged purple flower with yellow stamens. The dark purple color makes a good foil to lime colored foliage and flowers or mixes with other jewel toned flowers to give impact to a spring planted container.

Winky Purple and White is a mildew resistant variety of Columbine. The lobed leaves will stay fresh looking long after the blooms finish. Deer usually leave Columbine alone in the garden. They will be even more protected when planted in a container near the house. The masses of blooms make long lasting cut flowers and also attract bees, butterflies and Hummingbirds.

Winky Purple and White Columbine Care

Although Winky Purple and White Columbine has a wide range of hardiness zones, it may be treated more as a short lived perennial in the coldest of zones. A thick mulch of leaves or organic compost in the fall will help keep the plant crown protected from snow and extreme cold. Columbine likes slightly neutral to alkaline soil with a pH of 6.5-8.0. A well drained, average soil in a sunny to partial shade site is suitable.

Fertilizing is best done very early in the spring as the new growth emerges. A slow release, well balanced food will keep the flower buds forming. Deadheading of spent blooms will help to keep Columbine blooming longer in the spring. This is especially important when planted in a container. When the leaves begin to die down in midsummer is the best time to cut back for the fall and mulch.

Winky Purple and White Columbine Spacing

Proper spacing of Winky Purple and White Columbine will ensure that pests and diseases have less of a chance to be an issue. Planting at a space of 12 inches on center will provide adequate air circulation.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
