Wondering if anyone would be interested in a columbine seed exchange when they produce seed. I have a few varieties but I'd like to get some different colors. If interested, please post pictures.

Very pretty, Grace!

Once they start to seed, I'll be in touch and you can let me know what you want and we'll exchange addresses then. I'd like some of each of yours as well. Thumbs up

I should have lots of seeds soon. I was going to cut the seed heads off but if you want some I'd be happy to let them stay.

I started with Origami seeds so these are dwarf plants. I got two colors-white/pink and purple/pink. The front yard has only the white/pink so all the seedlings are the same.

The backyard has given me several different variations on the original colors.

I have several growing as well. However they cross pollinate quite easily. So chances of getting exact repeat if you grow several in one location is not high.

I'm interested. Not sure if I have pics thought and my columbine finished blooming last week or the week before. I'll have to see if I have any pics. They are pink with a small flower. Not sure of the name. I have a lot of seed saved from a couple years ago, but will have to check the germination rate.

The bottom 3 photos are crosses. The others are original but the crosses stay pretty consistent from year to year. This one is one of my favorite crosses. (it's much prettier in person)

If you have extra seeds to trade , I would love to trade for them to sow this fall.
I don't have Columbine but many other seeds.
Here's some recently collected:
Orange cosmos (these get large)
Red pentapetes
Texas bluebonnets
Fuchsia 4o'clock
Spineless okra
Indian bitter melon

Hi Betsy, I have two varieties left - the tall purple and the Winky maroon and white double columbines. If you message me with your address, I'll drop them in the mail. Likewise, I'll reply with my address if you'd care to send me some flower seeds - I don't want any okra or melon seeds.

Thank You!
