These unusual, purple-black fully double flowers are held well above the neat, fern-like foliage on strong stems.  Closely resembling a miniature dahlia, these flowers add a natural charm to any garden!  Hummingbirds are drawn towards the splash of color that the black flowers lend to the landscape.  Aquilegias are widely known for their love of shady areas, but also do well in the sun, in moist, well-drained soil.  Use them for an early season cut flower; long lasting, up to two weeks.   Aquilegia is especially lovely when allowed to naturalize in shady, woodland borders.
