Could you help identify this aquilegia in my garden please? It has appearred for the last two years
If it appeared by itself, it won't be a specific cultivar as aquilegias are extremely promiscuous and cross-pollinate all the time (in fact, it's difficult to stop them!)
It is a very pretty one though!
Thank you for your prompt reply won't make me a fortune then ?
I would buy it. It is really very pretty.
I love it, pity it isn't upward facing.
Aquilegias would lose their charm if upward facing.
I agree nut. I love the nodding...
Lynn's white beauty looks much better from below in my opinion.
Adore Aquilegias primarily because they throw up so many interesting combinations and are as reliable as anything. And yes I'd buy that one if I saw it for sale, I don't have a white one
I'll save some seeds and see what happens !
Good idea and start as many off as you can as it's likely only a small percentage will resemble the parent in any way but it's definitely worth a try!
It has a very unusual shape so if you find any offspring are similar then you could try and isolate those plants and cross-pollinate between them. That's how new cultivars are bred but it's a long, long process.
