Description

This beautiful, pale limey-white aquilegia, or Granny's bonnet, is 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.

Care Tips

Cut back leaves in autumn. Aquilegias can self seed in the right conditions, to prevent this cut down after flowering.
