Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata | Black Barlow
If you love dark coloured flowers then you won't want to be without this one! This beautiful Aquilegia was actually bred for the cut flower production and with its fully double upward-facing flowers it is a stunner. As a cut flower, it can last up to 10 days in a vase so you if love to have fresh flowers in the house then you need this lovely plant.
The flowers are spurless and almost like a little pompom and it flowers profusely from spring. It grows in a bushy upright clump that performs well in full sun to partial shade with average moisture levels. A covering of mulch will help to retain the moisture levels that it enjoys particularly in drier summer months. It is easy to grow and looks at home in garden beds, pots, shade gardens and of course cottage gardens.
Cut back after flowering to encourage a flush of new leaves. Cutting the flowers will encourage more flower stems or leave to set seed. Also known as a Columbine or Granny's Bonnet and Clematis flowered Granny's Bonnet.
Height 75cm x 50cm spread
Plant size: PB2 - Equivalent of 1.2 litres
