This beautiful white Aquilegia  Snowballs has stems of nodding almost spherical white balls ... just like little snowballs on branching stems that stand proud above the blue grey divided foliage.  Aquilegia Snowballs is a upright clump forming perennial that flowers from late spring into early summer. 

Plants tend to hunker down over the winter especially in colder areas they are essentially deciduous but in milder climates we find that they can retain a small amount of foliage.

Aquilegia hybridise readily so new plants will have some variation to the parent plant.  You can actually divide Aquilegias in spring, but be aware they do resent disturbance so may take a while to settle in again before they re flower.

Flowers can be used as a cut flower in floral work.  If growing for cutting, you may wish to treat these as a bienniel rather than a perennial and plant fresh plants each season and self sown prodigy are often not identical to the parent due to cross pollination.  For the longest vase life, flowers should be harvested early in their flowering cycle before they drop any petals. There are many, many varieties to choose from that are great for cutting and you can see more of our Aquilegias here

Aquilegias are happy in full sun to partial shade in average, medium moisture but do require a well-drained position as they seriously dislike wet feet, but conversely, they do not like the soil to dry out, so mulching will help retain moisture over the hotter summer months. 

Having white flowers the sun can burn them so we feel the best conditions are really partial shade. Plants will self sow but if other Aquilegias are nearby you can find some interesting new plants popping up but that's what we love about Aquilegias.
