Aquilegia canadensis - 2019


By Andrewr

Aquilegia canadensis - 2019 (Aquilegia canadensis)

Species aquilegia. Plants vary in height between six inches and three feet, but two feet is about the norm. Prefers a shaded position, but will grow in a sunny spot as long as the soil remains moist

I'm growing the species aquilegias from seed and let them flower first to make sure they haven't go cross pollinated at the seller's nursery. I thought the blue background really made this one stand out well

It looks fabulous against the blue ...

I have never thought of cross pollination. Yes it does stand out against the blue. I ve just given a packet of Aquilegia to my youngest daughter.

You'll like this one, Andrew. I found a small group of these pretty little jewels on a rocky hilltop growing between moss pockets and rock scree. They don't last long do they? I went back a week later to find them and transplant a few to my garden..and I could not find them! perhaps something likes them for dinner!? their colour is so brilliant it's fiery.
