At the moment my Mountain Columbines are overflowing in the gardens. They are absolutely the most wonderful shade of iridescent blue!! I am always on the look out for more blue flowers to plant-most don't survive the winters like these self-seeding wonders!!! Mountain Columbine Blue...nothing else like it!
What beautiful flowers! I would call that a true violet color? Too hot here for columbines, but I've had them in red when we lived on the east coast. I want some of those weed blocking glasses!
Good question! We have the same flowers growing wildly on the side of our house and I never knew the name. They are truly wonderful. Thanks for sharing the picture!
The color looks like a dark periwinkle to me.
I have used goldenrod to dye wool with, makes a beautiful pale yellow.Debbie
Where can I get a pair of those weed-blocking glasses??? :*)
Laura, did you mean grasses? I like to use the ground cover to block out weeds as well.
Okay -- here's the irony -- this color is called Columbine Blue, believe it or not. Doesn't help us much, does it?? It IS a gorgeous color -- I love it, too.Diane
