Semiaquilegia is a small genus in the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae, closely related to columbines (Aquilegia). The difference between them is that false columbines lack the spurs that columbine flowers have. Two species are grown as garden plants, both are native to China.

Propagation:


Seed - sown in September - November.

Seed lightly covered and stored outside until germination. 

Self seeds a little, but not so as to be a problem.
