Columbine (Aquilegia) are Sarah's very favorite spring bloom. Their whimsical, fairy-like form, the way they dance above the rest of a cottage garden installation, the magical quality they lend to any cut flower arrangement, and the way they feed the hummingbirds and honeybees all add up to make especially endearing flowers. We've spent several years cultivating a blend of amazing pastel and ombre aquilegia, and are now offering this open-pollinated perennial seed mix from our farm.
Columbine are absolutely worth the extra effort of starting in late summer + overwintering for stunning spring blooms.
The root system development that happens throughout the fall and winter will mean stronger plants and even more spectacular blooms in spring. Note: we do not recommend pinching Columbines.
Culture: Transplanting recommended: Sow in August for late May/June blooms the following year. Do not cover seed as light is required for germination. Keep seed trays at 70-75°F. Germination may take 3-4 weeks, but they're worth the wait! Bottom water or gently mist to avoid covering the seed with soil. Transplant into larger packs after the first true leaves appear. Harden off and transplant outside when plants are about 2"-3" tall. Care for them well in the waning days of summer with plenty of irrigation and weeding, so they can be as well-established as possible before your first frost.  Final spacing min. 9” apart.
Packet contains 20 seeds.
Aquilegia, spp.
Direct seed option: Sow as soon as soil can be worked in late winter, for blooms the following spring. Do not cover seed as light is required for germination. Keep soil moist.
