A favourite of many garden designers, this aquilegia produces double, spurless flowers in a rich claret. It’s a very reliable variety which is easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade.
Seed can be sown at any time. Sow seed into good quality compost or seed raising mix. Cover with river sand or compost to seeds own depth. If sown directly into ground seed may not germinate until its dormancy is broken by a period of chilling. (Winter). Moist seed tray can be placed a plastic bag in a well lit area (light helps germination) and then kept at on gentle heat of 15-20 degrees C. Germination may take 2 to 4 weeks. Transplant seedlings into small pots until large enough to plant out in the garden.
