A strong new series of Columbines with large blue, spurless flowers resembling double clematis. Clementine Blue have an upright habit with a lush mound of foliage that is large-leafed and attractive all season. These graceful beauties add elegance to your spring blooming garden. Beautiful when combined with hostas.
Aquilegia are as much a part of spring as daffodils. Some have long spurs that project out behind the blossoms-others are spur-less with double blossoms. All self-sow without being annoying. Will yield interesting hybrids if others are close by to cross pollinate.
Little care needed. Leave fall basal growth to over-winter. Divide in summer if desired, not usually required since plant self seeds. If you want to prevent seeding and cross pollinating, remove spent flowering stems. Aging or damaged foliage can be completely cut back to level of new growth.
