Q.columbine plants ok indoors?
I’m in southeast Alaska. I’ve usually left my potted columbine outside for the winter. This year, it has new growth at the soil line and I’m wondering if I should bring it inside. Thanks in advance for your advice.

If you can replicate the conditions this wildflower needs, it should be possible to overwinter it indoors. It may not do much all winter, but if you put it back outside in the spring, it should be fine. Unless you want it to self-seed, you can remove the spent flowers and trim back the stems, and water it occasionally throughout the winter, but don't allow the soil to get soggy.
