Columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris Petticoat Pink) 50 seeds (#1720)
Perfect in cottage gardens!
Semi-double blooms, 'frilled and pleated' liked a Victorian petticoat, sit above compact, bushy foliage. Gorgeous delicate flowers, ideal for 'cottage gardens'.
Performing best in dappled sun to partial shade, Aquilegia prefers 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 and mixed borders, its unique blooms also make outstanding, long-lasting cut flowers.
