Plant Type: Perennials

This lovely new color will illuminate every corner of your garden. Soft lime green blooms nod above traditional blue-green foliage, creating an elegant display as a specimen or en masse. Plus, the fully double, spur-less blooms eventually turn to a clean white, creating even more interest both in the garden and in the vase. Tidy, clump-forming plants require little or no maintenance.

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.
