Dangling like delicate Japanese lanterns, the plum and soft yellow blossoms are topped with wispy, tapered spurs that curve inward. Like an ideal small-space ornament, this compact Aquilegia offers a demure mound of foliage and arresting colors. For any humus rich, slightly moist, well drained soil in a sunny spot. To 10-15 inches. Best sown in the fall. Zone 3a-8b.
