The very rare fragrant Aquilegia moorcroftiana, is difficult and short-lived. So we crossed it with a lovely bi-coloured Japanese aquilegia to produce these fascinating long-lived plants. Over a prolonged period in early summer appear sprays of delicate bi-coloured flowers, all deliciously perfumed.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
