The pure white, long-spurred blossoms of A. 'Dove' are exquisite. Its consistently prolific flowering and winter hardiness inspired an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society for this pretty little variety.
Lacy greens and dancing, late-spring blooms characterize these lovely border plants. Columbines make excellent cut flowers if picked when half open. Grow in full sun or partial shade (required in the South and in western Zones 9 and 10) and average garden soil. Propagation is by seed, so color, while quite reliable, cannot be guaranteed.
