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 coerulea is widespread in the Rocky Mountains, and was selected as the state flower for Colorado. In most forms it has blue sepals with long spurs and white petals.
