Aquilegia - the modern hybrid columbines. The original species were commonly called granny bonnets. Most of the 65 perennial species are alpine plants found in the mountain regions of the northern hemisphere. Various strains of the long-spurred hybrids provide a wonderful display in colour range, mostly in bi-colours, each spring and early summer. While happy in full sun, these plants thrive to perfection in semi-shade. There are many low growing species well suited to rock gardens. Most of our modern strains are derived from the best known variable species, A.Vugaris. Popular varieties are "Blue Star",
"Crimson Star" and McKana hybrids, 9 to 30inches tall.
