The upright stems rise high above the lush, dense foliage. From late spring, Aquilegia ‘Clementine Blue’ is dotted with delightful flowers.
The blooms of Aquilegia ‘Clementine Blue’ are just gorgeous, they face out to upward, showing off their beauty. They are spurless, so look a bit like small Dahlias and they last well as cut flowers.
The mid green, deeply divided foliage of Aquilegia ‘Clementine Blue’ forms a dense clump beneath the blooms.
The soft foliage of Aquilegias is a beautiful foil for other plants and it develops in early spring, just in time to fill in for the fading spring bulbs.
Aquilegia ‘Clementine Blue’ is suitable for growing in a lightly shaded to morning sun position. Plant them as massed plantings, in beds or in large containers. After the initial flowering has finished, cut the stems back to the basal foliage for future blooms. 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.
Aquilegia should be planted in humus rich, moist, well drained soil.
