Perennial; pink, white, yellow or blue, as well as the wild red-and-yellow va; riety. Blooming in May and June, and about two feet in height. The aquilegia should be provided with a rich, moist soil, and will grow in either sun or partial shade. It is self-sowing to some extent, although the seedlings do not come true. It is quite hardy, and requires little care.
