I'm glad they survived the post office.  Is the rose flowering?. It has a deep pink simple 5 petalled flower.

These are new seedlings from Touchwood aquilegias. the Photos are theres and not mine. I hope they will flower for the first time next year,at which point I will pick out the best for seed. Star Gaze Lily, i can send you aquilegia seeds from my current plants such as lilac pom pom,raspberry pom pom, black barlow, raspberry ripple etc.

Mine are happy in free draining, the best ones are doing well in some light shade. I think they do not like too much heat.

Like many of these sensational colour blends, the depth of the yellow colour as the bud opens is the most dramatic, with a gradual fading to a creamy shade.
