Known as European columbine, common columbine, granny’s nightcap, granny’s bonnet, flowers in various shades of purple, blue, pink and white. In traditional herbalism columbine was considered sacred to Venus; carrying a posy of it was said to arouse the affections of a loved one. In modern herbal medicine it is used as an astringent and diuretic.

Often this species needs to be planted just before the frost or needs a long period of cold for Stratification, so its seed dormancy can be overcome.
