Is it normal for aquilegia plants to die off so soon after flowering?
North East England, United Kingdom
The plants were lovely and flowered really well, but have now finished flowering, and the plants seem to be dying off even though it's only early June (I would expect them to die off later in the year, to come again next year). Four of the plants are newly planted this year, but one has been there for several years and comes back each year with no problems until now. I live in the north east of England. My garden is roughly north-west facing and the plants are in full sun in the morning and in shade in the afternoon. The soil is clay.
