Aquilegia vulgaris ‘Winky’ mixture

Winky Columbine

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.050.850

Columbines are now available in a wide range of colours and plant heights. The Winky series, reportedly a mildew tolerant series, produces loads of upfacing blooms held just above a bushy, compact mound of lacy leaves. The plants are uniform in habit and height with strong stems. This mixture features spurred flowers in a range of bicolour combinations, including blue and white, red and white, purple and white and two-tone rose, blooming spring to early summer. Great for edging and in containers. Either allow plants to self-seed or cut back hard right after blooming. Columbines are not long-lived plants, but seedlings will provide future generations although the colours usually differ from the mother plant.
