Columbine: Frequently asked questions

What types of Columbine are there and what determines a good product?

There are many different types of Columbine. The most common is Aquilegia vulgaris, which has a blue flower with yellow stamens and white petals. Other species include A. chrysantha (yellow flowers), A. longissima (red-orange flowers) and A. formosa (pinkish red).

A good Columbine is one that has a nice, tight bud formation. It should have no discoloration and the leaves shouldn’t be too big or small. The buds themselves should also not be too large in size but they need to be dense enough so as to produce quality smoke when smoked.

Who should use a Columbine?

Anyone who is looking for a good, all-around crossbow. It’s not the fastest or most powerful bow on the market but it has enough power to take down any game in North America and will do so with accuracy at ranges of up to 40 yards. The speed is more than sufficient for hunting small game like squirrels and rabbits as well as taking out larger animals such as deer, elk, moose etc… If you are just starting out then this would be an excellent choice because it won’t break your bank account while still being able to provide great performance. You can even use this one if you have some experience under your belt too since there aren’t many bows that offer better value per dollar spent than this one does.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Columbine?

The most important criteria are the plant’s overall health, vigor and disease resistance. Columbines should be purchased in bloom or just after flowering so you can see how well they perform under your conditions. Plants that have been growing for a year or more will not necessarily do better than younger plants because of their age; it is much more likely to be due to differences in care received by different growers over time.

The main thing to look out for is the presence of any seeds. If you can find a seed, it’s definitely not a Columbine.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Columbine?


Columbines are a very versatile plant. They have many uses and can be used in the garden, as cut flowers or even for medicinal purposes. The most common use is to add color to your landscape with their beautiful blooms that come in shades of blue, pink and white. Another great thing about columbine plants is they attract bees which helps pollinate other plants around them.


It is a very invasive plant, and it can take over your garden. If you don’t want to have to fight with the plants every year, then this isn’t for you. Also, if deer are in your area they will eat them down to nothing. They love Columbines. I also find that these plants tend not be as cold hardy as some of their cousins (such as Aquilegia).
