Columbines are many gardeners favorite early summer plants. They are not long-lived plants, but they are generous with their seed. When the flowers are done, cut back most, but not all of the seed heads. That way you’ll know that you will have more next year, and if they don’t always appear exactly where you want them, they transplant easily.
Columbines are finishing their spring and early summer blooms, but are leaving behind the seeds for their 2018 display.
