Plant Type: Perennials
An exciting double flowered Aquilegia that is reminiscent of holiday candy-canes planted in the garden. An amazing combination of red and white flowers that draw immediate attention. Strong flowering plants will intrigue even the most well-seasoned gardener.
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:
In fall, they should be cut back to their basal foliage. Remove only the dead leaves in the spring. Can sometimes be affected by leaf miners.
