Aquilegia Black Barlow

Black Barlow is one of my favorites .. it really is as close to black as possible and very dramatic looking. One annual problem I have is leaf miners ... nasty little pests that you can't really do to much to because they are inside the leaves .. which means I usually have to strip the affected ones and get rid of them that way. It does put a dent in enjoying this plant .. but I keep trying .. every year !

I love the columbines! I lived in colorado for a bit and the columbines made a place in my heart.
Be well.
