Aquilegia ‘Black Barlow’ has blooms of a purple so dark it could be mistaken for black. These fully double flowers have no spurs and we think they look a little like mini Dahlias. Unlike most Aquilegias, they tend to face outward, better showing off their beauty.

Aquilegias thrive in light to moderate shade, though with sufficient moisture will grow in full sun. Ideally plant into moist, well drained, humus rich soil.

After the initial flowering has finished, you can cut the stems back to the basal foliage for future blooms. This will have the foliage lovely and lush right up to frost. Leave the last flowers of the season to form seed heads for future generations of plants. Keep in mind seedlings are unlikely to flower true to type as they hybridise easily.

Aquilegias are suitable for growing towards the front of a lightly shaded border, in massed plantings or in large containers.
