Aquilegia vulgaris


This charming perennial was developed by Dr. Weaver’s grandfather, H. Ralph Weaver, founder of the Roughwood Seed Collection. Created during the 1930s, this columbine is unique for its 30 to 40 inch stems loaded with dark blue blossoms.  The original idea was to create a columbine that would work well for florists in large flower arrangements.  Many a wedding was graced with these eye-catching flowers, which open dark blue then fade into several subtle shades of blue. Generally pest-free and not attractive to deer or rabbits, here is a flower that will add many years of pleasure to your garden.  Perfect for cottage gardens and pathway edgings!  Reseeds easily and will naturalize if weed competition is kept under control. Blooming period: May – June. 


~50-60 seeds per packet.
