Interesting Facts


Aquilegia is the Latin word for eagle, referring to the petals that were thought to look like an eagle's talons. The common name Columbine comes from the Latin word for dove since Romans thought the inverted flowers looked like five doves.




Tolerates a wide range of soils except for heavy, poorly drained ones. Prefers rich, moist soils with light to moderate shade. Remove flowering stems after bloom to encourage additional bloom.
