What's up with my #columbine? 🤔 Its leaves only get to a certain size before they wilt and die off. I planted it last summer and it did the same thing. It's in a partly shaded border... Does it need more sun? More space? Less water?? 🙁 #help

aquilegia can handle partial shade and some of mine are in shade for the priority of the day! They do like to be kept moist but not wet! Other than that I've no idea!

We have Nora Barlow and we have it in total shade(north side of house) we don't let it dry out but we give it minimal water and it does great! We fertilize it once a month beginning when the buds start to form.

@Hellebore @gjones Thank you for your comments! I might wait and see if it does better after my fertilise last week. If not I may move it to a less sunny, crowded area since I think it's being inched out by foxgloves and lilies at the moment!
