If you are looking to add some color to your shade garden, columbine fits the bill. This soft-looking and low-care perennial adds a sparkle of color to a woodland garden. It is tougher than it looks and can handle our capricious weather. The leaves can look a bit crispy in the summer, and the plant disappears in the winter, but it faithfully returns to surprise us with its alluring presence. Columbine can be easily trimmed when not looking its best. When in bloom, it is a truly spectacular plant with jewel-like blooms.
