Plant Features

Songbird Blue Jay Aquilegia Plants produce a gorgeous deep shade-of-blue sepal behind the purest white, long-spurred, upward-facing petals and all enclosing prominent golden stamens. Flowers measure 3 inches, wow! Columbines are easy to grow and thrive in moist, well-drained soils. Full sun is okay in northern gardens; afternoon shade is preferred in southern gardens. Well suited to cottage gardens, at woodland edges, and are excellent in containers and as cut flowers. Aquilegia attracts hummingbirds and butterflies while deer and rabbit tend to avoid it.

Companion Planting: Digitalis, Euphorbia, Geranium, Hemerocallis, Hosta

Good condition

The plants came in good condition. I have been able to transfer them in my plot and they are growing real well. This is my second time purchasing. I have always had good experience since I started purchasing plants in here.

Plant shipment

Since my purchase were starter plants I can’t provide a picture showing a blooming plant. However, I can tell you that the plants were very well preserved and packaged carefully. They arrived in great condition and are thriving. I will continue to purchase from this company.
