Aquilegia caerulea
‘Rose Queen’

‘Rose Queen’ is a recent addition to our selection of Rocky Mountain Columbines.  The flowers retain the wonderful long spurs of its wild parent, but the color is now an intensely dark rose contrasted with white. It makes a great cut flower and with its vigorous upright habit and natural look flower, it would make a nice addition to both a woodland garden and a sunny rock garden. Flowers are 2” across with characteristic long spurs, atop 2’ stems, and like its relatives, it will bloom all Spring long. Foliage spreads to about 2’. Cut back and top dress with compost when your plant looks tired!
