Masses of deep blue-black flowers through spring and summer. A graceful and abundant choice that is easily used throughout the garden or even in pots.
Aquilegias really are a cottage garden essential with sweet flowers and delightful lacy foliage. It is hard to show how really amazing they are, you need to try them for yourself.
Aquilegias are an elegant foil for the fading foliage of spring flowering bulbs, as their new growth starts in early spring, and is up in time for when the bulbs are going into senescence. They are comfortable growing in a lightly shaded to morning sun position. You could plant them in borders, as massed plantings, in beds or in containers.
After the initial flowering has finished, it is ideal if you can cut the stems back to the basal foliage and add some fertiliser to encourage more blooms. You can leave the last flowers of the season to form seed heads for future generations of plants, seedlings may not flower true to type as Aquilegias hybridise easily.
