Superb, large white flowers with long, handsome spurs. The flowers bloom spring to summer and are beautiful in a vase.
With Songbird Aquilegias you will have oodles of flowers to enjoy in the garden with plenty left over for picking!
The Aquilegia Song Bird Series has larger, more upward facing flowers, complimented with long spurs. The blooms average 7cm across and boast an impressive and lengthy show. The foliage is more compact and lush than the common forms. The Aquilegia Songbird Series holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for quality garden plants.
Aquilegias are cottage garden essentials, with sweet flowers and delightfully lacy foliage. Their elegant, fern like leaves make a beautiful foil for the fading spring flowering bulbs.
The Aquilegia 'Songbird Series' is suitable for 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, 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, keeping in mind seedlings are unlikely to flower true to type as Aquilegias hybridise easily, but every one is a beauty.
It is hard to show how really amazing they are, you need to try them for yourself.
