Aquilegia vulgaris. Delicate little pink and white double flowers bloom in early spring and come back each year. They make excellent cut flowers in early spring and summer, and they attract bees and hummingbirds.
28″ – 38″ tall | Perennial in Zones 3-9 | Part shade recommended for Alabama
Plant comes in 1-gallon container.
Dig a hole twice the diameter of the pot the plant is in. Place the plant in the hole so the top of the root ball is level with the soil surface. Fill in around the plant and firm the soil gently. Space mature plants 1 to 2 feet apart, and water thoroughly.
Prefers light shade in the south and is not too particular about soil as long it’s well draining and not too dry. Will tolerate full sun where summers are cool and plants can be kept watered. Keep the plants moist following planting until well established. Then only weekly watering is necessary with exception to extended periods of drought in which they will require additional watering.
Provide a water soluble fertilizer monthly. Regular fertilizing will help produce brighter blooms and thicker foliage.
Deadhead faded flowers and new buds will develop along the stems. The bloom season can be extended by as long as six weeks. Cut back foliage to the ground in the fall. When the ground is frozen, mulch to protect plants.
