Aquilegia is a genus in the family Ranunculaceae. They are hardy plants that prefer fairly moist soil and semi-shade. However, the genus includes a few alpine plants that need full sun and well drained soil.
Seed sown in January - March.
Seed just covered and kept at 20°C (68°F) until germination which can be slow. After germination it should be kept at a lower temperature with plenty of light so the plants won't become lanky.
Very small columbine that is not as hardy as the species. Needs fertile, well drained soil and sun or partial shade.
