Nora Barlow Columbine is a cultivar of Aquilegia vulgaris named around 1890 to honor Charles Darwin's granddaughter, who was a hybridizer of various flowers, including columbines. This unusual type of rose-pink and green-tinged double-flowered, short-spurred columbine was known as far back as the 16th century.
Native Distribution: Europe
Sow seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before the last frost date at 70 degrees F. To improve germination, pretreat seeds with cold, moist stratification for 3 weeks before sowing. Transplant to 3” pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outside into fertile well-draining soils after the last frost. Approximately 25-30 seeds per packet.
