Aquilegia Columbine Crimson Star     Bee butterfly and pot

Approximate Seed Quantity: 45

Aquilegia Columbine – Crimson Star. This has to be one of the easiest and most rewarding Perennials available producing beautiful flowered long spurred blooms on slender stems in an eye catching red & white combination. Provide it with a humus rich, slightly acidic soil and you will be rewarded with an abundance of blooms in late spring and early summer. Excellent as a cut flower.  Height 75cm. Will happily self-seed or you can collect for later sowings. Perennial but will die back. Download sowing guide

July, cover seeds very lightly with vermiculite and expect germination within 2 – 6 weeks at 15 to 20 °C.

  • Transplant and grow on gradually acclimatising to outdoor conditions.
  • Seeds sown late will over-winter under glass / cover.
  • Aquilegias will readily re-seed and can be sown direct to borders or in wild / natural grass areas.

Feeding is unnecessary unless the soil is exceptionally poor. An aquilegia should not need staking, but an overfed plant will flop.
