Anyone any good with aquilegia id?
Nope but who cares...they're all lovely!
Aquilegias are so promiscuous that very few have individual names. Nora Barlow leads to barlow types , and there are clematiflora type and vulgaris type.
The national collection at Touchwood has lots of photos, most just have a number.
The bottom one looks like plant world strawberry ice cream.
Unless you bought a named variety they won't have names. They're a promiscuous lot and every one is different.
They're nice photos, I keep trying to get pics of some of mine but no good ones so far (pics that is, the aquilegias are lovely)
That's the pleasure of aquilegia. You never know what you'll get. I have a lovely white one but I think it's either a bit of a tart or very shy. No other white one anywhere
Ok thanks guys, i grew these from seeds i was given and they didn't have a name.
They are lovely! And you get to pick names for them (more fun when saving seeds than writing "pink 1" on the seed packet ?)
Love them who cares if they're slutty!
