Aquilegia vulgaris 'Nora Barlow'
Drumanagh gave me the seeds of Aquilegia Nora Barlow last spring. Normally Aquilegias do not come true from seed but Nora Barlow (Drumanagh's profile picture) is the exception. I must confess that I have never had much luck with Aquilegia but I did get a few plants.
I then resowed the remaining seed last autumn and ended up with one brave seedling that came through last winter.
Anyway, today last year'splants are in flower for the first time. Aren't they just gorgeous - well worth the wait!
