Aquilegia canadensis 'Little Lanterns'

There are dozens of species of Aquilegia, and hundreds of hybrids. The species range from small alpines from high in the mountains to tall plants from woods or meadows, which would be at home in a herbaceous border. The ones we offer include excellent and reliable rock garden plants and others that are unusual or new in cultivation. They come from all round the Northern Hemisphere. See also Semiaquilegia.

Aquilegia canadensis 'Little Lanterns' is half the size of the species. The brilliant red lantern-like flowers with yellow corollas have a nodding habit to start with, they then bend upwards to reveal their stamens. Prefers to be in full sun, though will tolerate part-shade, but must be kept moist through the summer.
