Aquilegia scopulorum

Aquilegia scopulorum

Family ranunculaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers blue (spring-early summer)
Size 6"
Light sun-part shade
Cultural notes well-drained soil with reliable moisture

Small plant whose blue flowers have yellow anthers and long spurs. Native to the western US. Reportedly short-lived, which is typical for aquilegias. Not so typical: our second-year plant, set in a trough, did not bloom, instead staying cute and small as ever. Perhaps next year...

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
