These seeds are from a dark purple columbine that was planted many years ago on our property, we don’t have a variety name but it has grown and seeded well for us. Plants flower better in cooler temperatures. Deadhead for addition blooms.
Easy Fall/Winter seeding produces beautiful plants next summer.

Columbines start easily from seed and will readily multiply once established. Columbine flower seeds can be directly sown in the garden anytime between early spring and mid-summer or in the Fall. Press them gently into the soil, do not cover, they need light to germinate.
You can also start them inside in cell packs or flats, again, do not cover with soil. Kept soil moist and at 65 to 70 degrees F, seedling will emerge in 21-28 days. This a is good plant for Winter Sowing.
Keep seeds cool and dry until ready to plant.
