Details

This heirloom variety dates back to the 1600's and is still highly sought after with its claret coloured blooms and easy growing habit. Imagine a glass vase filled with them!

A clump-forming perennial with almost fern-like, grey-green foliage. Aquilegia comes from the Latin word for eagle which refers to the flower's five spurs that resemble an eagle's talon. Its lightly fragrant flowers, on slender erect stems, contrast nicely with its blue-green foliage. The common name, columbine, means dove-like, and the flower was often depicted in medieval paintings to represent the dove of peace. Sweetly familiar harbingers of spring, these little woodland perennials are enchanting when allowed to naturalize in a shady border.
