They do love the heat but they require light to germinate and with the fluffy heads on the seeds they blow away very easily.  I would suggest starting them in doors 4 to 6 weeks before last frost and then not putting them out until the soil temp outside reaches a steady 55 degrees f.

The ones I have are a miniature variety only about 6 inches tall but lots of blooms.  Would you like a packet of seeds to try next spring?

I have some purple columbine that are ready to be picked for seed, and some shasta daisys.

I got my blush pink double bloom columbine today, along with some more of the zinnia and centaurea montana.

The double pinks sound pretty Tammy.

I think they look nice in the shade where the light tint shows up nicely.  Would you like a packet of about 20 seeds?

wow 18 packets of approximately 20 seeds each from the Blush Pink Double Bloom Columbine.  That is quite a hall.
