Yellow Queen

I have had Yellow Queen (Aquilegia chrysantha ‘Yellow Queen’) in the garden for few years now but never blooming this well.

Finally found a spot this columbine likes. Moderate shade and well drained soil seems to be the best place for it.

The Yellow Queen is quite tall but surprisingly survived the thunderstorm we had yesterday which was a surprise for me.

Must collect the seeds next month and plant more in the spring.

Yellow Queen

The Yellow Queen is blooming beautifully and it is my first yellow aquilegia. It has required many failed attempts and plenty of waiting to get here.

For aquilegias it has been a perfect start of a year. No heavy rains to ruin their flowers.

To be honest it has been extremely dry up here in the north. All the other plants look that they have been beaten by the sun and the lack of water.

According to the weather forecast it should rain today. Now I am just waiting and hoping.
