So far, this is a flimsy little columbine in our garden. It bloomed in its second year, and the sequence from bud to fully developed flower was rather interesting to watch day by day. Not much garden presence though, at this point - after bloom, it just faded away.

I've seen A. chrysantha, but haven't grown it - so I'd have a hard time comparing.

|Sssydeny FRemantle||Jun 01, 2011||I've grown a.chryanta sewveral times but this is the first year a. longissima has flowered for me. Main differences: a. c. lacks the long spurs and has no hint of pink in its flowers. Has more substance and is a favourite with garden visitors. I think main virtue of a. l. has been in its use for hybridisation. |
