#ProPlantTips for Care:

Origami Red & White Columbine is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerating a wide range of soils except heavy, poorly drained ones. These easy-to-grow herbaceous perennials prefer afternoon shade in the hotter USDA growing zones 3 to 9! Provide a 3-4 inch layer of mulch to help keep the roots cool and moist.

Remove flowering stems after bloom to encourage additional bloom. Keep soils uniformly moist after bloom to prolong attractive foliage appearance. Though it is hardy, this Columbine will likely survive the first light frosts, and then go dormant for the winter and appreciate a 3-4 inch layer of mulching for protection in the winter. When foliage declines, plants may be cut to the ground. Resistant to Deer and rabbits, Columbines are also pest and disease-resistant.

  • Full Sun, Afternoon Shade & Partial Shade
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Regular Moisture & Appreciates Mulch
  • Deadhead & Prune Late Autumn
