A newcomer which has been bred in Costa Rica and offers a shorter version for those of us with smaller spaces, courtyards and balconies. Aquilegia 'Earlybird White' is a romantic looking, single coloured bloom with long, spurs to the back and open, deeply cupped fronts which are accented by zesty looking stamen. Flowers are held from May to June and have a quintessential, cottage garden charm which is amplified by their other common name, Granny's Bonnets. Foliage is also of beneficial interest - offering lace-like, deeply cut and ferny leaves from April to August each year. These pretty flowers also make a beautiful addition to a floral bouquet or vase, lasting up to ten days.Exceptionally attractive to pollinators and other wildlife, this unusual, new variety will not only delight you and your visitors, they will also make an ecological contribution too. Plants will readily naturalise in the right conditions - although seedheads can easily be removed to prevent this.Aquilegia 'Earlybird White' prefers a spot in moist, well-drained soil which benefits from full sun or partial shade. A fully hardy, herbaceous perennial which reaches a maximum height and spread of 30cm.
