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.

Propagation:


Seed – seed germinates slowly and at low temperatures, best sown in September - November.

Seed not covered and stored outside until germination. Germination can be slow, seed may germinate a year later so it‘s important to not throw it away prematurely.

A very pretty species, with large, almost flat flowers. They can be bicoloured, blue and white or just a solid blue. The spurs are very short and turned in. It grows best in sun or partial shade in well-drained, fertile soil. It doesn't self-seed.
