AQUILEGIA vulgaris 'Woodside Variegata'( Vervaeneana Group)
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The spurred blooms of Aquilegia vulgaris ‘Woodside Variegata' are an elegant complement to its unusual, variegated green light, yellow and ivory mounds of foliage. The lacy leaves emerge vivid chartreuse in spring, fading to a softer tones in the warm, summer months. Tall, branched, wiry stems support the pendant, lantern-like blooms, which are held high above the glowing foliage in spring. Blossom colors can be either light blue, white, red or pink, attracting bees, butterflies and moths.
Aquilegia vulgaris ‘Woodside Variegata' performs best in dappled sun to partial shade and evenly moist, nutrient-rich soil with good drainage. It will readily cross-pollinate with other columbines and self-sow if allowed to go to seed, which is considered an advantage by some gardeners. However, faded flowers should be removed promptly if new plants are not desired. An ideal choice for woodland plantings and mixed borders, its blooms also make excellent cut flowers.
