Columbine (aquilegia): This woodland perennial grows in part shade and produces beautiful nodding flowers in spring. It takes part shade and moderate watering. There are many species and cultivars, but all Columbines are wonderful.  The one thing that might mar the beauty of the leaves is a pest called a leaf miner.  It will leave lines in the veins of the leaves but they don't injure the plant.    What a great flower! Have a great spring.

Liatris (liatris spicata): This is Liatris spicata, considered an unusual perennial due to the fact that it blooms from the top down instead of from the bottom up like a gladiola. When the bloom is done, cut it off and it will allow the plant to put energy into itself to be bigger next year. Does best in full or partial sun with even moisture and a well drained soil.  ,

Snapdragon (antirrhinum majus): Popular as plants for sunny areas of the garden, with lance-shaped foliage and clusters of flowers on spikes with 5 lobes, divided into upper and lower "jaws." If you pinch the sides of the flower, it will make the "jaws" open, or snap. There are many varieties, but most will continue to bloom until the weather becomes hot. Although they are mostly treated as annuals, snapdragons will winter over and last another year, and may even reseed.
