Aquiligia Cameo

Posted: 30/05/2016 at 16:30

Cameo is a cultivar of Aquilegia flabellata, a pretty small species compared to the A.vulgaris brigade. If you have both you might get some interesting babies.

It's worth getting a few different ones, the reds/yellows of the N. Americans and A. viridiflora (often marketed as 'Chocolate Soldier' ( or something like that) all mix up together with great results

Never been GD, it sounds wonderful I might be a bit envious

Paths make the best seed beds. I have lots of plants that started life in the drive

G. sanguineum

G. nodosum

PS, I failed to answer the question. I think they're too small to flower this year but will be great next year as long as you leave them in the ground

Agree with Bob, leave them, though if they've only just been put there you could group them. they make more of an impact in a group than in a row separated by other plants.

those red things in pots are pelagoniums GD.

Nice maderense That isn't hardy enough for long term survival here.
