Aquilegia 'Munstead White' is a very pure white Aquilegia reputed to have been specially selected by early twentieth-century garden writer and designer Gertrude Jekyll in her garden at Munstead Wood in Surrey, England.

Being a painter, Gertrude Jekyll knew that white flower lit up shady areas but that they tended to fade in brighter light.  This variety has large pure-white, gracefully nodding flowers with spurs about each 4cm  long which are borne in great profusion on leafy stems from late spring and into early summer. The pure white flowers of this Aquilegia really do lighten up a shady spot and look wonderful with other plants with cool greens coloured foliage and also look lovely planted with ferns.

Munstead White is an upright plant that will grow to 50cm in height
The attractive divided foliage forms a basal clump of fresh apple-green, leafing up early in spring to make a lovely foil for bulbs and early Primroses in the garden. The abundant, bee-pleasing flowers are 5cm in width, each with short, curled 
All aquilegias are easy to grow and, being a herbaceous perennial, they come back year after year without any attention or special TLC required.  Aquilegia are naturally happier in the half shade of woodland edge.  They are deep-rooted plants which seek water well and are therefore tolerant of dry shady conditions as well as full sun although do not like to dry out.

Aquilegia 'Munstead White' has been awarded the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
