Aquilegia vulgaris 'Lime Sorbet' is a beautiful, pale limey-white aquilegia (Granny's bonnet) ideal for drifting through a calm-coloured bed and makes one of the best upper storey flowers you can grow, its delicate, pretty flowers standing out above the rest of the bunch. I love it.

Aquilegias are invaluable for flowering in May and early June when there is very little colour in the garden. They will thrive in sun or partial shade.
