Nora Barlow Columbine

Aquilegia vulgaris ‘'Nora Barlow'’

Nora Barlow is a modern name attached to an ancient type of "rose" columbine in which the sepals are doubled with an unusual greenish tinge. These types were illustrated in European herbals of the early seventeenth century.

Nora Barlow will thrive in fertile, cool soils in sunny or partially shaded sites. Sow seeds in a pot during the growing season, then transplant the seedlings to individual pots before moving to their final garden destination. Grows to one or two feet in height.
