Aquilegia General Information

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.

Aquilegia Plant Care

Little care needed. Keep moist until established. Fertilize annually. You can remove spent flower stalks to freshen appearance, but the gentle self seeding of Columbine is usually welcome, so wait until seeds have dropped. Foliage may melt away in hot summers, only to return in the fall. If Leaf Miners appear, leaving trails of white inside the leaves, Neem oil is a safe, organic way to discourage them. Occasionally a rebloom can happen in the fall if conditions are right.
