Columbine - Origami Blue & White
3 Months of Blooms
Columbine Origami Blue & White, Aquilegia x caerulea 'Origami Blue & White', is a new hybrid which boasts up to 12 weeks of blooms!
The elegant heavenly blue blooms face upward to show off their beauty in the garden. 'Origami Blue & White' has a neat and compact habit that makes this new Columbine a sure winner!
The spectacular colors are superb near the front of beds and borders. They can be used individually in small clumps, or massed together in combined groupings to create a stunning explosion of extended color.
The plant habit is perfectly upright and the foliage is attractive even when the plants are not in bloom. In late spring and early summer, they produce picture perfect bouquets of flowers just above the mounded foliage.
Resistant to both deer and rabbits, 'Origami Blue & White' is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It tolerates a wide range of soils except heavy, poorly drained ones; prefers rich, moist soils with light to moderate shade. Resistant to deer and rabbits.
Remove flowering stems after bloom to encourage additional bloom. Keep soils uniformly moist after bloom to prolong attractive foliage appearance. When foliage starts to die back, plants may be cut to the ground.
Even though it is hardy, this plant does not require mulching or protection in the winter.
Hummingbirds love the showy blooms that are loaded with nectar!
