Aquilegia Alpina

Aquilegia alpina is a compact species with small clusters of charming, bonnet-shaped, blue flowers, ideal for adding colour to a rock garden just after the spring bulbs are finished. The plants are easy-going, but short lived - if allowed to set seed they provide their own replacements, and self sown seedlings left to grow where they germinate are extremely drought-resistant. All aquilegias cross freely with others in the area so seedlings may not be pure A. alpina and sometimes turn out be much larger plants.
