Columbine Plants

Columbine Problem

Anonymous added on June 17, 2015 | Answered

Once Columbines stop blooming, is the plant's foliage suppose to look unsightly, dying, and diseased? I have leaf miners, dead leaves and dead stems. Is there a way to maintain that fresh, green, full foliage or is this just normal? Also, how much should Columbines be watered/fertilized after blooming? Thank you for your help.
