Highly attractive and uniquely shaped flowers in cream, pink, yellow and lavender appearing in spring.
Each dangling, bell-shaped flower has five petals that flare out from the base, surrounded by a collar of five larger sepals.
Most varieties of Aquilegia plants will bloom for at least four weeks.
Aquilegia plants are naturals in woodland and rock gardens. Their delicate fan-shaped foliage is a nice contrast to ferns and other shrubs since they hold their flowers high above the base of the plant.
Aquilegia plants are adaptable, but they prefer an acidic soil pH of about 5.0 to 6.0.
New plants will need to be kept moist until they become established. You'll know they are established when they start putting out a lot of new growth.
