Columbine 'Texas Gold' (Aquilegia chrysantha hinckleyana 'Texas Gold')
Spider mites and/or leaf miners may attack foliage during the heat of summer, if so, prune plant to just above the crown. The plant will leaf out again in the fall when daytime temperatures cool down.
'Texas Gold' columbine will come back in the spring and can be propagated through division every couple years. Remove spent foliage and any dead growth during growing season. Keep soil moist but not wet to avoid rotting crowns. It will appreciate protection from the hot evening sun.
