    Michael-
    Very eye catching flower. Is it rare or found easily? I have only seen a Columbine one time in situ, back in the 1980's

    Harvey--it only occurs after good rains in the outback desert areas, but after the rain it will be found all over and lots--Can be grown home with care-My uncle always grows it easy-just has to be hidden as will get stolen too.Ive have only once seen it albino variety-have a pic somewhere--will try find it soon and post.
