Name: Aquilegia species
Aquilegia, it's common name is Granny Bonnet or Columbine. Often-times found in cottage gardens it is notorious for self-seeding. Bright green foliage dies back each year to emerge again triumphant as temperatures begin to rise after winter. Flowering in spring it is an incredibly attractive and easy care addition to the border.
Different varieties each have their own special qualities, and this enables the gardener to find an aquilegia to suit whatever the space or colour scheme required.
