A spectacular new generation of columbine, this selection produces a large bouquet of bright violet blue, spur-less flowers that resemble double clematis blossoms. They face upward for best display and make excellent long lasting cut flowers.

 The 'Clementine' series of aquilegia is the best we've seen in years! The plant habit is perfectly upright and the foliage is attractive even when the plants are not in bloom. In late spring and early summer, they produce picture perfect bouquets of flowers just above the mounded foliage.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Columbine should be planted in partial shade areas in southern climates. They can tolerate full sun in the north, although light shade will prolong their flowering time. They grow very easily in loose, average to rich, well-drained soil. In the fall, columbine should be cut back to their basal foliage. Remove only the dead leaves in the spring. Remove only the dead leaves in the spring. Columbine can sometimes be affected by leaf miners. If this happens, remove and destroy all the leaves affected by the leaf miners. Columbines do not require mulching unless they are planted in beds with wide open exposures. Propagation should be done by seed rather than by division.
