Hi, could you tell me what kind if Columbine I have? I have two plants, we have had for years, both purple, then, maybe after the first year, or maybe the second, they started having purple and white blooms, and the other stems have yellow , with a lighter yellow on the outside.
We live in the country. There are no other Columbines for miles.
They have been in the same flower beds for 20 years. I have other flowers by them, but no Columbines. I'd appreciate any help you may be able to give me.
In the picture, the purple are at the top, and the yellow are at the bottom middle.

I just think it is because they produce randomly colored flowers, within reason of course.
The yellow may already be there but at times presents itself as the dominant color. Variations could be due to light, higher night time temperatures, or lower.
I am looking at my lantana as I am writing this and on one plant I have yellow centered flowers with medium orange around the edge. Then I have medium orange surrounded by red. I also have light orange surrounded by medium orange. All on the same plant.
And as I look further I have a red one surrounded by yellow and orange, just when I thought that the darker colors were on the inside always.
Bottom line, I don't think that you need to worry!! I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up
