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.

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. Does best in evenly moist, rich soil. 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.
