About Aquilegia Blue Star
The Blue Star Columbine sepals wrap around the white flower creating beautiful stars for your garden. The butterflies and hummingbirds go crazy for its rich nectar and fragrance. The flower heads are large with long spurs. Truly lovely!
Planting and Growing Aquilegia
Make sure to “harden off” your Aquilegia to cool nights and windy conditions before planting to prevent shock. Prepare your planting hole by turning the soil at least a shovel size deep and wide and be sure the hole is filled with plenty of organic matter for best results. Plant deep enough to cover the top of the root ball. Press down firmly on the soil and then water it in. Consider fertilizing once or twice a season. You can mulch if you like but not too close to the plant to avoid rot.
