Aquilegia Identification Please
Can anyone tell me whether they have ever had an aquilegia turn from a normally shaped white flowered parent to a self set one with no 'skirt'? Is this something unusual - certainly is to me.
Seedlings can vary greatly from the parent, although I find that many of the doubles come true. That version is termed a clematiflora, ie, it looks a lot like a clematis flower, rather than the usual grannys bonnet type. It is certainly an early flowerer. Mine are just forming new leaves.
You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things.
