A superb border plant where plenty of humus has been dug into the soil, it sends up a superb array of flower stems which are topped by a hazy, fuzzy show of purple flowers. They add a marvellous, gentle effect in midsummer which contrasts well with more stately, formal plants. The seeds are equally attractive. The reason for the second part of the part of the name is that the leaves look very similar to those of an aquilegia. In open, exposed areas the plants need to be supported. It has been given the Award of Garden Merit (AGM) by the Royal Horticultural Society.
