Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
AQUILEGIA( DRAGONFLY SERIES)
Columbine, Dragonfly Columbine
Columbines add fanciful color to perennial beds and rock gardens and members of the Dragonfly series won’t disappoint. The compact plants offer large showy flowers late spring to early summer.
The plants emerge in the spring with mounds of delicate, silvery green, lobed leaves held on slender branched stems. The large flowers have prominent tubular nectar-holding spurs that point backward and five huge showy tepals that flare outward. The flowers come in shades of rose, blue, yellow, white, pink, and crimson and many are bicolors.
Columbine is an easy to grow perennial that prefers full sun to partial shade and evenly moist, organic-rich soil with good drainage. They tend to cross-pollinate and self-sow, so many different variants can appear in the garden. Columbine tends to be short-lived so new ones can be beneficial. Those in the Dragonfly series have very strong stems and make pretty but short-lived cut flowers.
