Aquilegia caerulea Kirigami Yellow (Columbine)

Columbine Kirigami Yellow, Granny's Bonnet Kirigami Yellow, Monk's Head Lily Kirigami Yellow


Aquilegia caerulea Kirigami Yellow (Columbine) is a charming herbaceous perennial boasting a profusion of long-spurred, pastel yellow flowers. Blooming profusely in late spring to early summer, the blossoms are upward facing, for a perfect display, and rise elegantly above the deeply-cut green foliage. This columbine is a vigorous performer with sturdy upright stems and a bushy habit. Excellent for both the landscape and containers. As an added bonus, the flowers will last well in cut arrangements.

  • Grows up to 22-24 in. tall (55-60 cm) and 16-20 in. wide (40-50 cm).
  • Performs best in full sun to part shade, in loose, average to richmoist, well-drained soils. Seriously dislikes poorly drained soils! Rich, moist soils in part shade are preferred. Salt tolerant.
  • Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies, but it is rabbit resistant.
  • Easy to grow, this plant is a welcomed addition to beds, borders, cottage gardens, shade gardens or naturalized areas. Excellent cut flowers lasting up to 2 weeks in a vase.
  • Susceptible to leaf miner.
  • Propagate by sowing named seed rather than by division. Mature plants do not like to be disturbed.
  • Remove faded flowering stems to promote additional bloom. Cut to the ground when the foliage declines (around midsummer).
  • Contact with the sap may irritate the skin

Aquilegia is a genus of clump-forming, short-lived perennials noted for their late spring to midsummer blooms of single or double, short-spurred or spurless flowers, in a variety of colors ranging from blue to violet to white to pink to red. A classic element of herbaceous borders, Columbines mix beautifully with peonies, irises, alliums and roses.
