Aquilegia (Columbine)

« Previous  1 2 Next »
Columbines are floriferous perennials from usually fresh open spots in woods, montane meadows and rock crevices. Most species will readily grow in any humus rich, slightly moist soil in partial shade or full sun. Several dwarf subalpine species require a very well drained, preferably slightly rocky soil and are best grown in a protected spot in the rock garden.
Note: In this utmost diverse genus it is extremely difficult to precisely separate species, as well as to distinguish its numerous subspecies, varieties and forms from each other with precision, not to mention that all plants easily hybridize. Our seed derives from mother plants which fit by their habit to the type description. However we cannot guarantee that all species are absolutely correctly named nor that seeds do not include some hybrids. We cultivate all closely related species separately from each other, however please note that all seeds derive from open pollination. If you would like to maintain pure lines we strongly recommend to continuously check your cultivated plants and to remove all plants which do not correspond to the species as soon as flowers start to open in spring.
Sow flat on any humus rich, well drained soil. Only slightly cover seeds, keep pots in partial shed and soil always slightly moist from beneath. Seeds need a cooling period of several months prior to germination. If they are sowed too late, they may take another winter before they will germinate in following spring. Germination occurs at a minimum of some 10°C in autumn or spring. Transplant young plants in late autumn or early spring as soon as they are strong enough. Most species will start to flower the following year after sowing. With appropiate conditions most columbines will moderately selfsow.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
30 seeds per package.
