Aquilegia, also known as Columbine or Granny’s Bonnet grows very well in the North East of Scotland.
One colourful specimen Crimson Star, has carmine red flowers with a white corolla. Flowering June/July, this plant will make a welcome addition to any border.
Regarding longevity of Aquilegia I have found that those of a very deep blue colour survive the longest, often six years plus.
Position – Full sun/Partial shade
Hardiness – Fully hardy perennial
Height – 90cm
Common name = Grannys Bonnet
