A Biedermeier Columbine should be planted in full sun to partial shade in fertile, moist, well-drained soil for best results. Columbines are a profuse self-seeder, so it is recommended for these to be planted 12 to 18 inches apart. The planting area could double in a few years because of the prolific reseeding characteristics of the plant.

Quickly naturalizing and filling sweeping areas with their unique leaves and multi-colored flowers, ‘Biedermeier’ can be contained by deadheading right after they finish blooming. Feel free to use them as a cut flower, to enjoy in your favorite vase.

The Biedermeier Columbine can be used in many applications, like rock gardens or in containers, beds and borders, in cottage gardens and butterfly gardens. It attracts butterflies and hummingbirds and other pollinators, but deer tend to leave it alone.
