At the risk of being repetitive, here is another post on aquilegias. But I promise it will be the last. When I bought the seeds (from Touchwood Aquilegias) I was the least convinced about the red and yellow doubles. But as I had ordered virtually every other colour and shape combination I thought ‘what the heck’.
The idea of red, yellow or orange – the colour of the ‘new world’ species such as A. canadensis – with the form of the ‘old world’ doubles filled me with dread. But I think I was wrong.
The naughty bees, which cannot reach the nectar at the end of those long spurs, bite their way to the sweet reward – without pollinating the flowers.
