Alpine Columbine (Aquilegia Alpina) 80 seeds (#1947)

The beautiful, violet-blue flowers of Aquilegia alpina, or alpine columbine, have been cultivated since ancient times. Native to wooded mountain regions of Europe, it forms a low, spreading mound of delicate, lobed, blue-green foliage which somewhat resembles that of a maidenhair fern. Its large, nodding, cobalt-blue flowers feature contrasting, golden centers and rise well above the foliage on tall, wiry, branched stems from mid-spring through early summer.
Aquilegia alpina performs best in dappled sun to partial shade and evenly moist, nutrient-rich soil with good drainage. It will readily cross-pollinate with other columbine and self-sow if allowed to go to seed, which is considered an advantage by some gardeners. However, faded flowers should be removed promptly if new plants are not desired. An ideal choice for woodland plantings, mixed borders and rock gardens, its richly-colored blooms also make excellent cut flowers.
