Alpine Columbine (Aquilegia alpina)

A stunning variation of Common Columbine. Native to the Swiss Alps, this variety features nodding bell-shaped, double violet-blue flowers. Plants grow 18- 24” tall. One of the first perennial flowers on our farm to show dense flowers in the late spring-early summer. Must be planted in well drained soils but can tolerate some partial shade. A good choice for larger outdoor pots and containers.  Columbine adapts well to urban pollution and marginal soil types.

Planting Instructions: Requires cold stratification before seeding. (4-5 weeks of refrigeration.) Start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Broadcast seed on top of soil and lightly cover with dome or plastic film until emergence.
