Aquilegia vulgaris, violet-blue form - 9cm pot
(Photo courtesy of Jelitto). This is the traditional form that we all love so much. Low mounds of soft, slightly blue-green leaves and upright, well-branched stems of elegant violet-blue flowers. Makes an excellent cut flower and looks wonderful in drifts or dotted through the garden. Part shade, or full sun with well-drained but humus rich soil. Flowering height to 70-100cm x 30-40cm wide. 9cm pot.
