Aquilegia, often called the Columbine or granny’s Bonnet is a quintessential favourite in cottage style gardens. They are beautiful perennials with incredibly intricate flowers, rising on long, straight stems above mounds of scalloped grey-green foliage.
The flowers of Aquilegia ‘Winky Blue and White’ are upward facing and have stunning purple-blue outer petals and rearward pointing spurs with two-tone blue and white inner petals. Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', the late spring and early summer flowers are a favourite with butterflies and bees.
Best grown in partial shade, Aquilegia prefer moist but well drained soil. They do well in containers too and make delightful cut flowers, lasting well in a vase. Aquilegia readily self-seed, and you’ll notice them popping up all over your garden, increasing your collection, and they’re ideal gifts for your gardening friends!
