Grow Black Barlow Columbine from fresh Aquilegia vulgaris flower seeds. Black Barlow will produce beautiful, double petaled blooms that span 1 to 2 inches wide. The plants present flowers that are deep burgundy in color, looking almost black in the evening and on cloudy days. Black Barlow Columbine plants will reach a mature height of about 2 feet tall. The plants will form mounds of stems and foliage, grown from 4 to 5 seeds per mound. Each collection of Black Barlow Columbine plants can spread roughly 18 inches wide. Aquilegia / Columbine plants are grown as a perennial flowering plant, meaning that they will establish a deep root system to regrow the following growing season. Most varieties of Aquilegia may not bloom the first year, however the wait is well worth it. These beauties will attract an array of beneficial insects such as butterflies, bumblebees, hummingbirds, ladybugs & more. The seeds can be a bit tricky to grow, but with the proper germination techniques, nothing is impossible. Aquilegia flower seeds can be stored in cold storage for a number of weeks prior to sowing. This process of stratification helps trick the seeds into an otherwise natural wintering process.
