Perhaps I misunderstood........thought the OP was looking for sugary pinks and blues......I don't think Cuprinol do that

Cuprinol do pinks and blues and all sorts of colours, not desperately sugary, but a wide assortment http://www.cuprinol.co.uk/web/pdf/cuprinol_garden_shades_colour_guide.pdf

Yes, cover them over with some more soil - they'll peep through again soon

Ask your chap if he knows of anywhere you can get hold of some going cheap, explaining that you've been the victim of a despicable thief - you never know, he might come across some exactly like the ones you had that someone doesn't want any more

Yes, it was pink - if you click on the BBC Gardeners World programme link here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01ytkmt and then click on the Episode 9 you'll find it towards the end of the recording

Some people just think that if someone has a lot of something they won't miss a few and they help themselves   They regard it as 'perks' .  Totally wrong and totally dishonest of course, but they were brought up like it and you'll never change them 'cos they're not bright enough to take on new concepts 

Ask your suspect to keep his eyes open for the thief and tell him you, your neighbours and the police are doing the same.

And yes, mark them!!!

I've just looked online at A. alpinas - Shoot describes them just as the ones I've got - over half a metre tall  http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/aquilegia-alpina 

whereas GW says they're compact and suitable for rockeries  http://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/aquilegia-alpina/3237.html 

What do you think?
