Aquilegia saximontana

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 saximontana also known as the Rocky Mountain Columbine so a true alpine aquilegia. The smooth, blue-green foliage provides a pleasant contrast with flowers which range in colour from pale blue to violet and lavender to cream and tan. Very attractive to bees and butterflies.
