Aquilegia vulgaris 'Adelaide Addison'

Plant details

Charming old-fashioned cottage garden flowers with bonnet-shaped flowers, often two-tone and with long graceful spurs. Flowering in early summer, aquilegias fill the seasonal gap between the last of the spring bulbs and the first of the summer flowers. Deadhead by cutting flowered stems off close to ground level shortly after flowering, to prevent self-seeding, if you want to keep named strains true. 'Adelaide Addison' has double, pleated flowers which are purple and white.
