Aquilegia shapes

I've introduced other species and got some even more interesting crosses. A. viridiflora which is sometimes sold as chocolate something adds a nice new style. As. canadensis and skinneri for a wider colour range. A. vulgaris on its own doesn't go beyond purple/pink/white

There's another thread running about this one. It must be having a good year. All that rain we've had.

Try RHS Plantfinder

Put in the plant name and it finds suppliers.

Both of those will be descended from the wild one,Aquilegia vulgaris. There are loads of variety and cultivar names but the plants are so promiscuous they don't mean much.

Hey, WW

I've just been and had a look and I've got a flower bud

and I saw my first blue butterfly of the year

It would be good to see what colour they are WW.

They'll be late though. Those in the garden are in flower and not a hint from the babies

They are slow, some friends gave me seedlings last year and they're still very small, there won't be flowers this year.

I've got my first flowers this year from Touchwood seed. Sowed late 2012 or early 2013.
