Aquilegia vulgaris
Also known as Columbine or Granny’s Bonnets. Early flowering old fashioned perennial for sun or semi shade.  Spurless double bloom type with flowers of pink, blue, violet, wine & white. Beautiful naturalised under deciduous fruit trees. Despite all parts of the plant reputely being poisonous, no cases of toxicity have been recorded and several sources report the flowers to be not only edible but sweet and juicy. We have tried them and second that! In any case toxins are destroyed by heat or by drying. The young leaves can also be added to salads, as long as they are not showing any signs of mildew. The flowers can also be used to make a tea. The dried and crushed seed can be used to kill external body parasites including head lice.   Height to 100cm. 9cm pot. Certified organic plant.
