Aquilegia alpina

Columbine

This dwarf species columbine has nearly pure blue 2-3 inch blooms with a yellow center. Easy to grow and is long-blooming. The clump will spread two-feet wide in time. It is longer-lived, shorter and hardier than the fancy cultivars. It does not require deadheading to keep blooming and will certainly self-seed. Aquilegia comes from the Latin word for eagle in reference to the flower’s five spurs which purportedly resemble an eagle’s talon.

Columbine

A long-time popular plant, this Columbine or Grannys bonnet has beautiful, fully double, spur-less flowers in late spring above fern-like green leaves. The violet-blue blooms of Aquilegia 'Blue Barlow' look particularly lovely against silver foliaged plants, and it is equally at home planted with cottage garden flowers or among grasses.
