The flowers of green columbine share the same intricate form as more common garden columbines, but this species is distinctive for two things: its compact habit (to just about 1 foot tall) and its chocolate brown-and-green coloration. You’ll sometimes see this species associated with the name ‘Chocolate Soldier’; as far as I can tell, there isn’t anything different about ‘Chocolate Soldier’ except a more marketable name. Green columbine flowers around the same time as other columbines (mid to late spring), and I do have other kinds growing elsewhere here at Hayefield, so there’s a small possibility that these seeds may produce some off-type plants. Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 3 to 8.
2022-collected seeds are sold out. I hope to collect again in mid to late June 2023. At least 15 seeds.
