Aquilegia vulgaris ‘Winky Double Dark Blue-White’

Winky Double Columbine

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.050.810

Columbines are now available in a wide range of colours and plant heights. The Winky series produces loads of upfacing blooms held just above a bushy, compact mound of lacy leaves. This strain has deep blue outer petals, with a double centre or corolla in a blend of blue and white. Gorgeous in a perennial border or in a partly shaded woodland. Either allow plants to self-seed or cut back hard right after blooming. Columbines are not long-lived plants, so seedlings will provide future generations, although the colours usually differ from the mother plant.
