Columbines are often recognized as a wildflower growing in the northern part of the country or Rockies where they naturally occur. And while Roberta’s Songbird Columbines are indeed brethren of those wildflowers, their exceptional breed has solved all of the problems that would generally occur with most columbines. The Songbird Series offers four incredibly bright colored flowers that are remarkably large, almost four inches across, or about two to three times as big as most varieties. Also, these large blossoms sit atop tall sturdy stems that once established will likely never need the assistance of stakes, whereas many small flowered columbines require stakes and/or string. Furthermore, the Songbirds possess dense flowering rather than a few sparse flowers scattered about. The Songbirds will sing their sweet blooms for a long duration from late spring into summer each season. Roberta’s 4 pc Songbird Columbine Collection is comprised of bushy columbines that grow roughly two feet tall and wide with upward facing flowers that are all multi-dimensional and multi-colored – a few of the reasons why they’re a perfect flower. Bluebird is a fantastic sky blue with contrasting white petals; Cardinal boasts rose and white blooms; Robin’s scarlet and cream flowers are a dream; and Nightingale brings a traditional violet flower. This collection is sure to bring about the romanticist in us all.
