Love these. Grannies' Bonnets. Maybe that's just a local name, but it suits them.

Very delicate...are they small heads, SL?

Thanks Ojibway it does suit them :-)

Thanks Karen yes really small i would say half the normal size flower but it makes it up on quantity of flowers and flower stems...

I still call them Columbine's and like the leaf as well as the flower...not noticed flowers on mine yet.

I have these too SL, also have lots of different colours as they self seeded all over the place! Very pretty - I love them. :D

Thanks Pita, i do like these :-) they are nice in a big group i think...

I have them all over the place now and am trying to introduce more all the time. They are great 'between spring and summer' plants aren't they? I love them, but I am a bit choosy about them as well. I'm not fond of the big hybrid ones with two colours in the flower.

I agree Karen they are great fillers, these are about half normal size but have plenty of flowers..

30 Apr, 2012

 

I got seed from mine last year and they are coming on but very slowly..omg we NEED SUNSHINE!

30 Apr, 2012

 

i agree bring on the sun... :-))

30 Apr, 2012

 

I think we are all agreed on that point. Even if there are many things we don't agree on ....we all like sunshine! :))

Very nice. I have them too. Mine are just showing the leaves.

30 Apr, 2012

Thanks Kat :-)
