Zone: 3 to 9
Full Sun to Part Shade
Blooms late spring to early summer
Cultivar Notes - 'Barlow Blue'
Fully double, "dahlia-flowered" columbine. Beautiful, cup-shaped flowers surrounded by spur-shaped petals. Good for cutting and natural plantings. Attracts hummingbirds. Blooms May - June. 30" tall.
Genus Notes - Aquilegia
Aquilegia derives its name from the shape of the long, curved, tubular nectary, reminiscent of the claws or beak of the eagle--aquila in Latin. The common name, Columbine, meaning "dove-like" in Latin, alludes to the flower's resemblance to a flock of doves.

Rarely used for culinary or medicinal purposes, these species are of interest solely on aesthetic grounds. Abundantly prominent in medieval oil paintings, Columbines have clearly cast their spell on generations throughout history.

Columbines offer some of the most unusual and beautiful flowers to be found among hardy perennials. They come in a range of colors, often combining two colors in one flower, adding casual elegance to the midspring to early summer garden.

Columbines prefer moist, but well-drained soil and grow best in partial shade. They are not particularly long-lived, especially if kept too wet.
