What would the early summer be like without the wonderful aquiligeas? We look forward to them as soon as the spring bulbs begin to go over, knowing they will be the next big feature in every part of the garden. We never know where they will appear as they self seed and cross-breed freely. We let them get on with it until we feel they need some new blood. We select interesting colours and shape and leave them to add their genes to our pool of aquiligeas.
They come in so many colours, shapes and sizes but they all have interestingly shaped foliage a little reminiscent of over-sized thalictrum.
