Aquilegia Cardinal, Columbine

Aquilegia caerulea Cardinal, Columbine

Part of the Songbird series that was bred for huge flowers and compact habit. Stunning 3″ wide, red and white long spurred flowers are upturned, rather than facing down. Excellent, long lasting cut flower. Given a good home, they reseed nicely.
