Aquilegia x caerulea 'Songbird Nightingale' (Columbine)

Thumbnail Photo

Hybridized for their compact habit and large, long spurred flowers, members of the "Songbird Series" are among the most showy of all columbines. The most unique feature of the plants in this series is the way in which the flowers face skyward, not nodding like many other varieties, maximizing their full visual potential. This selection produces clusters of large 3", lavender and white bicolor blossoms.

Aquilegia is especially lovely when allowed to naturalize in shady, woodland borders. They also have excellent potential as cut flowers, lasting up to 2 weeks in a vase.
