(Columbine) Aquilegia 'Origami Red & White'

The colors of spring, besides Lupine, Columbines has go to be my second favorite spring blooming flower. It does not matter which Aquilegia variety it is they are all a wonderful addition to spring. Aquilegia ‘Origami Red & White’ is a wonderful bloomer with color lasting up to 12 weeks. When the plant is done blooming you can let the seed pods dry up and then sprinkle seeds all around. I will warm you have go to love Columbine if you choose to doe this because you will have them everywhere. So pick a great location and spread the seeds in love. ‘Origami Red & White’ is a great plant choice when looking to bring in natures added attractions of butterflies and hummingbirds. But don’t worry the unwanted guests of deer and rabbit will usually leave this plant alone.


Aquilegia ‘Clementine Dark Purple’

I love it when the first flowers of spring appear. Aquilegia ‘Clementine Dark Purple’ is one of those that just amazes me with its strong flowering ability. They also bloom quite long while you wait for your other plants to wake up.

(Columbine) Aquilegia ‘Clementine Dark Purple’ is part of a spectacular new generation of Columbine with flowers resembling a small double flowering Clematis. The rich purple flowers of ‘Clementine Dark Purple’ are fully double and spur-less. In late spring through early summer these beauties are packed with blooms above the compact foliage. The upward facing flowers also make excellent cut flowers!
