The selectionDenver Gold®was a Plant Select®recommendation in 2001 and quickly gained popularity for its ability to grow in a wide range of light conditions as well as soil types.
The luminous yellow flowers are large with long spurs, giving them a distinctive butterfly appearance in the garden. The long stems of flowers float over clumps of lush, blue-green foliage. Denver Gold®columbine is surprisingly longer lived than most other columbines. It will reseed and naturalize in a garden and the seedlings are true to the form and color of the parent. This great columbine will flower from May to June and if deadheaded will flower again in the weeks of summer.
Mountain gardeners have a reason to rejoice as Denver Gold®grows easily up to an elevation of 9,000 feet. It is easy to grow, has longevity in the garden and has eye-catching beauty for weeks on end.
