Aquilegia vulgaris Columbine

Aquilegia vulgaris 'Clementine Red'


♦ Zones:  3 - 9     Height:  12 - 18"     Exposure:  Full Sun to Part Shade ♦

Profuse spurless double flowers are a favorite of hummingbirds and an ideal choice for cutting and flower or rock gardens. Mounds of blue-green leaves are attractive all season.  Aquilegia prefers to be grown in loose, average to rich, well-drained soil. Heavy or soggy soils will hasten their demise. In the fall, cut plants back to their basal foliage. In the spring, remove only the dead leaves.
