Once upon a time,a little seed catalog in England offered this phenomenal, super double version of our favorite vigorous and floriferous Columbine, Aquilegia chrysantha. Though it soon disappeared from the catalog, we were determined to collect seed and secure this delightful rarity for posterity. To 3’ x 2’, it bursts into a profusion of scented fairy lantern flowers for several months, Spring to Summer. Long-lived. Deadhead and cut to ground after bloom. Rich soil. Self sows!
