At last, a seed Columbine that blooms the very first year . . . and for many thereafter! Origami Mix is a beautiful blend of 6 colors (4 of them stunning bicolors) that can be sown in spring or fall for same-year bloom — they need no cold period to start flowering like crazy!
Not only is Origami Mix quick, it’s exceptionally showy, with HUGE 2- to 3-inch blooms of white, yellow, and 4 combinations with white: blue, red, rose, and pink! The flowers festoon these upright 14- to 16-inch plants in spring (from a fall planting) and late summer to fall (from a spring planting), combining beautifully with Coleus, Begonias, and other shade lovers. Happiest in at least half a day of sun or dappled shade, Origami is an upright plant just right for the perennial border, patio, woodland plantings, or accents.
Origami Mix blooms very uniformly — all colors open at the same time on equally-tall plants, making it a great choice for a large planting or a formal setting. You will love this easy, unusual perennial! Pkt is 10 seeds.
