Aquilegia ‘Kirigami Blue/White’ – Columbine – 1 -Quart


There are oodles of columbine cultivars available in the nursery trade. Most have complex/unknown parentage involving species columbines from North America/Europe/Asia. Generally speaking, long-spur columbines have at least some North American parentage. In North America, columbines are mostly pollinated by hummingbirds and the long spurs have evolved to be accessible only by hummingbirds – bees don’t have long enough tongues to get to the nectar at the end of the spur.

‘Kirigami’ varieties have long nectar spurs on the flowers and we treat them as “quasi-native” plants. They will be attractive to hummingbirds visiting your garden.
