Aquilegia ‘Sunburst Ruby’ – (Granny’s bonnet)


Out of stock


This aquilegia has brilliant lime to golden  foliage and is believed, by its breeder, to be the best foliage aquilegia that has been bred to date. In addition the  large trusses of deepest garnet ruby red flowers are beautifully offset against the stunning foliage.

Likes well drained soil in full sun

Sowing advice

Can be sown at any time. Sow finely and evenly in a seed tray. Cover thinly with soil, and keep well-watered in a well-lit spot outside in the garden during the spring/summer, or in an unheated greenhouse at other times depending on the temperature range ( sometimes they will germinate more quickly at  15- 20 degrees) , though many seeds have inbuilt dormancy mechanisms and often wait until spring to emerge.  Reject any green seedlings which may appear, and transfer to small cell pots to grow on.  Plant out when large enough.
