AQUILEGIA VULGARIS 'BLUE FLAMINGO'
Large deep blue flowers open on long stems above strong clumps of strong green maiden-hair foliage. This selection from Pink Flamingo is very vigorous and will happily self-seed making attractive drifts wherever it is allowed.
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.
