A wealth of flowers in sun or shade with a wide range of pastel colors: rose, blue, yellow, white, pink and crimson. The overall effect of Aquilegia McKana Hybrids is very bright and colorful. Flowers form a delicate star of outer petals surrounding an inner ring with yellow centers. Long spurs project out behind the blossoms. The finely textured foliage forms graceful, airy clumps. This is the standard variety by which all others are judged.

All American Selections Award Winner 1955.

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. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

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.
