Grow this popular perennial from Columbine seed, and enjoy this unique variety with its long-lasting blooms. Aquilegia Vulgaris Nora Barlow is marked by spurless, fully double pink blooms which look like small dahlias. This variety is one of the few Columbines with double flowers and no spurs. Once Nora Barlow begins blooming, expect small clusters of pink flowers for 4 – 6 weeks. The flowers either face outwards or are nodding. Columbines make excellent flowers for cutting.
