Aquilegia vulgaris 'William Guiness'

European Columbine, Granny's Bonnet

Elegant, hardy flowers with backward-projecting tubular petals, called spurs, that bear nectar and attract hummingbirds. The many species and hybrids come in a variety of colors and bicolors that look good in borders, cottage and woodland gardens. Combine well with Campanula, Delphiniums, Dicentra and ferns. Plants hybridize and reseed freely. Cut back old stems to encourage a second bloom. Easy care once established. Will not tolerate soggy soil. Protect from wind. Watch for leaf miner and Columbine borer.
