Aquilegia flabellata `Nana Alba` Columbine
Aquilegia flabellata 'Nana Alba' is an Asian species that loves to grow in partial shade in a rock garden or towards the front of a small border. It forms a clump of grey-green leaves, said to evoke a geisha's fan. Since Columbines are relatively short lived, allow some of the flowers to go to seed and self sow.
A good show of pretty white flowers, loved by bees, butterflies and moths.
