And promiscuous too . . . as Bjs says, as she crosses with other Aquilegia's and seeds herself around the garden, you never know how they're gonna turn out.
But that's half the fun right? :-))

The Birds and the Bees Pixi . . . well just the Bees really! Although I imagine you could have a go yourself with a small paint brush - and I know you've got one of those! ;-)
Hi Moti - yes my one has gone over now, but I'm waiting for the seed to mature. If you cut them to the ground, will they flower again?

Love Nora Nitty or Nutty, it is a lovely aquilegia. I agree she does cross pollinate very easily but it is so exciting seeing all the different variations that you can get.

Lovely to see your pics again!

28 Jun, 2012

 

Great pic - Lovely flower!

That was my mum's name. Very pretty it is too. whatever I plant of named Aquilegia, never ever, ever comes up again. I got the most fab white one and it was so lovely. Never seen again at the GC or in my border.

Dorjac, I had a plant of Aquilegia fragrans last year with a Honeysuckle-like scent and white flowers - alas it disappeared. But if I see it again I will give it another try.
Have you got a new avatar Lil? . . . looks like you're getting younger as I get older! Nice one. ;-)

Ahem!!
Not sure if you are being a cheeky monkey or a smooth talker Mark! Have you not heard.....50 is the new 30?
