Description

A favourite of many garden designers and often seen at Chelsea, this aquilegia produces double, spurless flowers in a rich and luscious claret. It's a very reliable variety which will self-seed, and performs well in dappled shade.

Care Tips

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