Plant Type: Perennials

Aquilegia Robin is part of the Songbird series, which is a hybrid strain of Columbine featuring large fully double blooms with rose-pink sepals behind white petals. These compact, bushy plants grow to a height of 18 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.
