Hi this is Yolanda from vanveenbulbs.com.
And in this segment we’re going to learn about the Columbine flower. It’s a beautiful North
American native flower that grows great in almost any climate. It just needs a full hot
sunny spot to grow. So Columbine we’re used by the Native Americans for many medicinal
purposes. And the roots are related to the Aconitum so they’re very poisonous but yet
they can be used as an anti-venom or for many different types of ailments but they’re very
dangerous so never ever use them at home. They’re a beautiful plant, just buy the roots
or you can start them by the seed. They grow naturally in wild meadows. And in areas that
have some sun but also they’ll grow with a little bit of shade as well. They’re a beautiful
flower that I love in my garden. The flowers look like just little rockets, like little
spaceships or fireworks and they come in so many different colors, yellows and oranges,
and reds, and they’re just a beautiful plant. And they’re very easy to grow. So you can
buy the roots or you can buy the seeds and start them easily. And you can plant them
either in the winter time or the spring time and they’re very hardy. They’ll grow in very
cold climates and can com back every year. They’re a great addition to your garden.
