Last year I bought a few plants on clearance at the end of season, they had no tag so it would be a mystery. Well, I am so confused.

One has turned out to be a columbine, it is only starting to open and seems to be a frilly variety and it is also blooming green.

I've never heard of green columbines, I will get a pic today or tomorrow when it fully blooms. Any body else have any like this?

I don't need any more columbines, I'll keep a few seeds in case but the rest are getting shipped out to anyone who wants them in the fall.

Cone flowers? I have so many, I can't give them away. I made the mistake of throwing 50 seeds in the ground many years ago and I think every seed sprouted. I think every person I know has been given some of them lol .

Have you seen yellow coneflowers before? I've heard you can get them now.
