Introduced by Richard Simon of Bluemont Nurseries, 'Corbett' Columbine is just like the wild red Columbine except that it rarely grows over 18 inches tall and its flowers are a pale yellow with short spurs. It prefers partial sun and good soil with good drainage, but it will tolerate full shade to full sun as long as the soil is not too dry and drains well. Flowering is in mid to late spring.
