Hi Daryl -- elevation about 2400' (northeast of Sacramento) -- we have a Mediterranean climate, wet winters (a little snow at my elevation), dry hot summers with no rain (though we have been having an unusually cold and wet spring so far).

Hi Daryl, I am not much of a cut-flower person either. Columbine can be used but often a little fragile. Here are some other suggestions from our master gardener's list (Sierra foothills) -- herbaceous peony, yarrow, cone flower, gaillardia, shasta daisy, coreopsis, gaura lindheimeri, geum quellyon, summer phlox, rudbeckia.
Hope this helps,
--Barb Tandy, Grass Valley CA

How's Columbine as a cut flower? I've grown them, but never cut them before.

Rockies is Betsy's territory... but how about columbine?
