Clementine Red Columbine
Columbine Clementine Red, Aquilegia vulgaris 'Clementine Red', is part of a spectacular new generation of Columbine with flowers resembling a small double flowering Clematis.
The fuchsia-red flowers of Aquilegia 'Clementine Red' are fully double and spurless. Butterflies and hummingbirds love the intense color! The upward facing flowers also make excellent cut flowers.
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, 'Clementine Red' is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It tolerates wide range of soils except heavy, poorly drained ones; prefers rich, moist soils with light to moderate shade.
Remove flowering stems after bloom to encourage additional bloom. Keep soils uniformly moist after bloom to prolong attractive foliage appearance. When foliage depreciates, plants may be cut to the ground.
Being very hardy, the columbine will likely survive the first light frosts, and then go dormant for the winter. This plant does not require mulching or protection in the winter.
Hummingbirds love the showy blooms that are loaded with nectar!
