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 chaplinei is like a miniature version of Aquilegia chrysantha, with long-spurred flowers that are rich yellow. It comes from rocky places in New Mexico and Texas, but can be grown in the UK in a sunny place in well-drained soil.
