Aquilegia Plants

Aquilegia Plants produce elegant, nectar-rich flowers that hummingbirds love. They are highly prized for their ability to brighten up a shady spot with color, and their long-lasting blooms are perfect for cut flower arrangements.


Aquilegia, pronounced ahk-wih-LEE-jiuh, also commonly called Columbine or Granny’s Bonnet, blooms early to mid-spring each year. Most feature five-spurred petals sitting above five petal-like sepals—creating striking color combinations, while others are spur-less and have double, triple or even quadruple blossoms.


Columbine plants should have the spent blossoms pinched in order to control their self-seeding habit. They thrive in well-drained soil and partial shade. Full sun will be tolerated with extra watering; otherwise, columbine plants are quite drought tolerant. These perennial flowers are also deer-proof!
