Huge, deep daffodil-yellow flowers reaching 3" across with extra long spurs. Denver Gold with its graceful blue-green foliage will continue all summer if spent flowers are removed. A 2001 Plant Select winner that is a real garden showstopper.
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.
