Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata 'Black Barlow'
Tall, upright perennial with fern-like grey/green leaves and dark purple pompon-like fully double flowers. Looks very striking when planted amongst grasses or along with other black flowers. Thrives best in moisture retentive soils.

Flowering in early summer, aquilegias fill the flowering gap between the last of the spring bulbs and the first of the summer flowers. All aquilegias have wonderful foliage that emerges early in the year, creating tufts of bright green among the daffodils and other bulbs. Self-sown aquilegias look beautiful planted amongst shrubs and roses. To keep chosen varieties pure, prevent self-seeding by dead-heading shortly after flowering.

The petals are supposed to resemble the outspread wings of eagles and doves, both of which they are named after, Dove being ‘columbus’ in Latin and Eagle being ‘aquila’.
