Songbird Cardinal is an award winning variety with rose and white, bicolor flowers that last two weeks in a vase. The large and long-spurred, skyward-facing flowers make this a very showy plant in the border.

Partial shade is recommended when planted in a hot dry site. Enjoy the delightful antics of hummingbirds as they sample the nectar-rich blossoms.

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.
