Aquilegia Cardinal is part of the Songbird series, which is a hybrid strain of Columbine featuring large, upward-facing, bi-color flowers with red sepals framing white to light pink petals. Compact, bushy plants typically grow to 28 inches tall with a spread of up to 24 inches. The flowers bloom in spring.

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.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates a wide range of soils except heavy, poorly drained ones. Prefers rich, moist soils with light to moderate shade. Remove flowering stems after bloom to encourage additional bloom. Keep soils uniformly moist after bloom to prolong attractive foliage appearance. When foliage depreciates, plants may be cut to the ground.
