AQUILEGIA 'ROMAN BRONZE'
This is the dark flowered (and much rarer) counterpart to Aquilegia 'Mellow Yellow'. Foliage opens yellow, but soon darkens to an orange-bronze. Flowers are quite consistently deep violet. Altogether an exceptional plant.
SOW FINELY AND EVENLY. COVER THINLY WITH COMPOST OR GRIT. KEEP MOIST IN A WELL-LIT SPOT OUTSIDE. REJECT GREEN SEEDLINGS AND GROW ON IN 3" POTS. PLANT OUT IN GOOD, WELL-DRAINED SOIL.
