Often called 'nodding bonnets' or 'American bluebells', these clump-forming herbaceous perennials have long leafy stems topped with delicate red, bell-shaped flowers with a yellow centre. Aquilegia plants are common in a cottage garden and have an air of rural comfort. This easy-to-grow perennial is a self-seeding species perfect for wild or more natural gardens where its nectar-rich flowers attract bees and other pollinators. This is an ideal plant for borders, beds and underplanting and grows well in containers for those with a balcony or smaller garden.

Aquilegia plant care.
Plant in well-drained sandy or loamy soil in a bright but partially shaded area protected from strong, cold winds. You should avoid clay or heavy soils as they may smother the roots and lessen the lifespan of your plants. Water the plant well to keep the soil moist. This will help keep the plant growing well and prevent powdery mildew from appearing on the leaves. Cut off discoloured or wilting leaves, and deadhead spent flowers to encourage new growth throughout the year. In the winter, you should mulch around the base of the plant to help protect the roots. If your Aquilegia plant is in a pot, it can be beneficial to put them in a greenhouse or cold frame to get earlier blooms in the spring.

Do Aquilegia come back every year?
Yes, Aquilegia is a perennial plant, so it will come back every year if they are correctly looked after when they are dormant. Winter anemone plant care is simple: mulch around the base to keep the roots warm and ensure that you wrap fleece around the stem of younger plants to help protect against frosts.
This AQUILEGIA caerulea Crimson Star comes in a 9cm Pot
