Aquilegia buergeriana ‘Calimero’


Dwarf Columbine

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.050.030


Columbines have been grown in gardens for centuries, and are among the most popular of perennials. Hummingbirds will often drop in to sip nectar from the flowers. This dwarf selection features bicoloured flowers of dusky plum-purple and soft creamy yellow, over a mound of ferny light-green foliage. Perfect for the rock garden, edging or in containers and troughs. Since Columbines are relatively short lived, allow some of the plants to go to seed and self sow: seedlings may be hybrids that do not resemble the mother plant. Leaf miners or sawfly may disfigure the leaves around flowering time. Simply trim off the ugly foliage and the plants will grow fresh leaves.
