Aquilegia alpina

Aquilegia alpina is a lovely columbine species that is native to Europe, especially the Swiss Alps. It is also a garden favorite. The deep violet-blue flowers bloom in late spring to early summer.

Aquilegia alpina is naturally compact, making it a good choice for rock gardens, the front of the border, or along the edge of a woodland path. It's very hardy, and it self sows where it is happy.

Also known as Alpine Columbine and Mountain Columbine. Drought tolerant. Deer resistant. Hardy perennial in zones 3-9.
