Aquilegia vulgaris William Guinness – striking deep purple petals surrounded by white central petals. A popular variety of cottage garden favourite ‘Granny’s Bonnet’ or ‘Columbine’. Graceful, nodding flowers float over attractive light to mid-green foliage from late spring to mid-summer. Aquilegias fill the seasonal gap between the last of the spring bulbs and the main flush of summer perennials. Aquilegia are easy to grow and self-seed.

They are clump forming and grow up to 70cm tall.

Supplied as 3 x 9cm pots

Growing Aquilegia Vulgaris

Plant this fully hardy herbaceous perennial in full sun to partial shade in fertile, moist, well-drained soil.

Deadhead to prolong flowering. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring every three to five years and apply a generous mulch (2-3in) of well-rotted manure or garden compost around the plant.
