Columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris stellata Nora Barlow) 75 seeds (#1415)

A classic for the cottage garden border with beautiful, fully double, spurless blooms on strong, uprigh stems.
Performing best in dappled sun to partial shade, Aquilegia ‘Nora Barlow’ 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.
Commonly known as columbine, they are beloved for their fanciful, lantern-like flowers, which usually bloom in spring or summer atop slender stems of varying lengths. These hardy perennials typically form clumps of delicate, pale to deep green, lobed leaves which emerge from small, slender, woody rhizomes (underground lateral stems). Columbine species vary widely in size and habit, and may occur in open woodlands, meadows, or alpine areas. Their colorful blooms are attractive to bees, hummingbirds, and many species of butterflies and moths.
