Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata 'Black Barlow'
Bred for cut flower production, Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata 'Black Barlow' is particularly beautiful with its fully double, dark plum-purple (almost black) flowers that look like starry pom poms. This variety of Aquilegia doesn't have the spures which are associated with these flowers. Aquilegias are very easy to grow perennial plants growing to around 60cm. They prefer full sun and well drained soil and are frost hardy.
