Description

Aquilegia have been bred for every colour imaginable, but sometimes it’s good to go back to basics. The species Aquilegia vulgaris is just as pretty as many of its cultivars and well worth a place in the garden. Nodding, mauve-blue flowers crown its upright, slender stems creating an airy display that mingles beautifully with other early summer perennials.

A tough and dependable plant, you’ll find this Columbine to be hardy, reliable and easy to grow, Over the years it will self- seed and hybridize to produce plenty of new plants for plugging gaps about the garden. Perfect for attracting insects to wildlife areas or colonising woodland edges. Height: 90cm (36”). Spread: 45cm (18”).
