Aquilegia ‘Swan Violet & White’
A hybrid derived from the Colorado state flower, the petals and spurs are an incredibly rich, shining violet-blue. The name honors the memory of the students and teacher of Columbine High School who shall never be forgotten. Proceeds from the first 3 years of sales benefited organizations that promoted diversity and tolerance in schools. Perennial.
Tips from the pros: Remove spent flowers in late June to encourage longer blooming. Foliage often declines in mid-summer so cut it back to the ground and allow it to regrow for fall. May self-seed.
