A big hit during the 2018 California Spring Trials. We have tested this series and can confirm that they are first year flowering, upright stems, and upward-facing flowers as the breeder claims. From Syngenta Flowers.

KIRIGAMI™ Rose & Pink has flowers with a mix of dark rose and lighter pink shades.

Aquilegia is especially lovely when allowed to naturalize in shady, woodland borders. They also have excellent potential as cut flowers, lasting up to 2 weeks in a vase.

 

Columbine is easy to grow in loose, average to rich, well-drained soil. Heavy or soggy soils will hasten their demise. They can be grown in full sun or partial shade, though light shade will prolong the flowering time. In the fall, cut plants back to their basal foliage.

In the spring, remove only the dead leaves. Columbine is sometimes affected by leaf miners. If this happens, cut the foliage all the way back to the ground and discard it. Healthy, new growth will emerge quickly. Propagate by sowing named seed rather than by division; mature plants do not like to be disturbed.
