Aquilegia McKana Giant Hybrid
Aquilegia are an easy to grow cottage garden favourite, flowering in late spring and early summer. McKana's Giant hybrids are a mixture of tall (60cm high by up to 45cm wide)) brightly coloured and bicoloured blooms in a range of pretty shades which are enhanced by the the long spurs which flare out behind the bonnet shaped flowers, which in turn appear to almost float above the elegant fern like foliage. The foliage continues to look good even after the flowers have faded. Loved by pollinators, and sets seed easily, although the parent plant may be relatively short lived.. Enjoys full sun or dappled shade in any type of well drained but moist soil.
