Songbird Robin Columbine
Aquilegia hybrida ‘Robin’
2′ high x 1′ wide
full sun to part shade
Not available for the Early Order Sale
The large spurred blooms of this columbine dangle tantalizingly over its lacy foliage. ‘Songbird Robin’ features a gorgeous outer rim of dusky pink petals that surround the center florette of white petals (with pink highlights) creating some fun contrast on the bloom. Longer lasting blooms for cut flowers and early season garden interest make this a great plant for early season color. But the show doesn’t stop there – if you cut back this columbine to 4 inches or so after the first flush of flowers, expect reblooming going into late summer. The added bonus is its resistance to both deer and rabbits, giving it more diverse use in the landscape.
