Variegated Aquilegia

Variegated Aquilegia

A few aquilegia are found with variegated foliage, the most usual form is a lemon and lime green foliage with a mauve flower. Usually a form of aquilegia vulgaris.

The form that we have grows well in a semis shaded position and although the flowers are pretty it is the foliage that gets the attention. Lovely ferny foliage that reminds us of the Ginkgo tree that grows nearby.

Pictured right is the plant in flower, below right is a detailed photograph of the foliage showing the pretty variegation in detail.

Care of Variegated Aquilegia is the same as other forms, part shade, humus rich, moist but well drained soil.
