Aquilegia rockii

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 rockii bears flowers of an unusual dusky purple colour, with a white edged corolla, in an open, loose structure of slender stems. It is refined and elegant, unlike some of the very colourful cultivated varieties. Originally from mixed forests in Sichuan and Yunnan in SW China.
