Description

The amazing Double Winky series has brought us a whole new look for this flower that was one of your grandmothers favorites. Lavish, bi-colored petals stand up and create an almost rose-like center, while the solid color guard petals below remain flattened, columbine style.

About the Columbines. Many people think columbines are the loveliest flowers of all, and they are certainly important in the wildflower world, and their hybrids have been garden favorites forever. Many important species are North American natives. Everyone in the Northeast loves the Wild Eastern Columbine, the beautiful smallish red one, Aquilegia canadensis, and of course, everyone in the Rockies loves the State Flower of Colorado, the large, blue Colorado Columbine, A. caerulea. There are important species native to Europe and Japan as well. One of the most commonly hybridized is A. vulgaris, a European species.
