Pretty; nodding blooms in late spring.
Alpine species with a carefree habit.
Trouble-free and easy to grow.
A pretty species Columbine from high in the Swiss Alps! Aquilegia alpina has a charming simplicity that makes it a delight to grow in rockeries, alpine gardens and borders. Nodding blue bonnets perch upon slender stems from late spring into early summer. This is a variable species, sometimes producing blue and white bicolour blooms. With a carefree habit, this dainty hardy perennial is best grown in groups and left to seed about to create trouble-free colonies, popping up among grasses and other perennials. Height: 80cm (31"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Grow aquilegias in a sun or part shade in fertile, moist, well drained soil.
Columbines hybridize readily. If seedlings are not wanted, deadhead faded aquilegia flowers to prevent them self seeding. Aquilegias dislike disturbance but overcrowded clumps may be lifted and divided in spring when necessary.
