Common Name: “Columbine”

(Columbine) Aquilegia 'Clementine Salmon-Rose' produces a large bouquet of spurless flowers that resemble a small double flowering clematis. They face upward for best display and they make excellent cut flowers. The flowers of 'Clementine Salmon-Rose' start off a lovely shade of salmon rose, then begin to take on shades of lavender purple as they age, starting at the tips of the flower petals. The multi-colored effect is truly beautiful!

Hardiness Zone: 3-9  

Columbine Growing Tips:

Columbine is easy to grow in loose, average to rich, well-drained soil. Heavy or soggy soils will hasten their demise. They can be grown in full sun or partial shade, though light shade will prolong the flowering time. In the fall, cut plants back to their basal foliage. In the spring, remove only the dead leaves. Columbine is sometimes affected by leaf miners. If this happens, cut the foliage all the way back to the ground and discard it. Healthy, new growth will emerge quickly. Propagate by sowing named seed rather than by division; mature plants do not like to be disturbed.
