Aquilegia Cardinal, Columbine
The magnificent deep crimson and pure white flowers of ‘Cardinal’ Columbine, Aquilegia, add exceptional beauty to the spring and early summer garden. A member of the Songbird series of Columbine, this exceptional group was bred for huge flowers and compact habit. Its stunning 3″ wide, red and white long spurred flowers are upturned, rather than facing down. Excellent, long lasting cut flower.
Columbine are naturally at home in woodland settings and look lovely mixed in with other shady loving perennials. Pollinators visit them often. Use Columbine in cutting, pollinator, cottage, and shady perennial borders. Columbine make an excellent cut flower, and are deer and rabbit resistant.
Growing instructions: Columbine prefer a part shade location and well drained soil. Good drainage is a must. They will naturalize in woodland areas. Removing spent flowers before they turn to seed will prolong blooming. If their leaves get infected with leaf miner, clip off infected leaves or cut back foliage hard and discard. Soon after a flush of healthy leaves will appear.
Offered in-house and online. Subject to availability.
