Answer: Columbines are generally not too fussy about soil as long as it is well-drained. They prefer cool, moist soil rich in organic matter, and filtered shade, which recreates the conditions they are found in naturally. Plants usually live only a few years, but will often self-sow. A plant source database search didn't turn up a columbine variety called bluebird, but growers are constantly coming up with new varieties. Give it a try!
