Aquilegia vulgaris 'William Guiness'

Columbine

A tall, striking plant with gorgeous deep black-purple outer petals that are in stark contrast to the white corolla or inner petals. 

It often sold as "Magpie" but William Guiness is the older name so we're sticking with that. 

It's a bushy, bold plant for it's family with pretty ferny foliage and makes a stunning display when planted in swathes. 

It is suitable for any partially shaded border or light woodland and requires rich moist soil that drains.   

A. vulgaris die in waterlogged conditions.
