Otherwise known as Columbine, this genus of about 70 perennials is known for attractive bell-shaped flowers.

Aquilegia are fully hardy and are happy in a bit of dappled shade. With hundreds of hybrids created, the flowers come in a whole range of colours including blue, purple, red, orange, pink, lilac, white and yellow.

The flowers are incredibly rich in nectar and so will attract any nearby honey bees to your garden. These plants freely self seed so are perfect for a bit of a wild patch – if you want to keep them under control simply collect the seeds.
