Product information "Aquilegia vulgaris 'William Guiness'"

This columbine variety is an unusual variety. The flowers are purple-black and the corolla therein is white and drawn back purple to the base. It has an upright, loose habit. Its leaves are lobed two to three times and they have a matte, blue-green colour. From May to June, the flowers appear and are arranged in panicles. Columbines love semi-shaded to sunny locations with well-drained, moderately moist, humus-rich to nutrient-rich soil. They are particularly suitable for semi-shaded perennial borders, in the foreground of hedge plantings and modern cottage gardens. In large flower beds, you can allow self-sowing in order to obtain abundant stocks. In smaller beds, the faded panicles should be removed on time. The Barlow varieties are particularly distinctive when combined with barrenwort, bellflowers, wild bushes, foxgloves, wood anemones, hostas and bugle.
