I planted a couple in the last (2012) late fall, they survived the winter despite 28deg and frost. I have it in a NW location and its now April and they're over 2ft tall and blooming. Like most aquilegia's they need a spot that gets moving air or the white mildew will take its toll., and if you top water it will be inevitable. I also have some that I started from seed and all are doing great.

What a pretty flower! I planted it a month ago and it is growing nicely with lots and lots of new flowers. I've been pretty good about dead-heading, but aside from that, I have done nothing to it, other than give it a dose of fertilizer when I first planted it. It is growing in heavy soil in half sun and half shade and it seems pretty healthy.
