Description

Unique and mysterious, Aquilegia 'Black Barlow' is sure to leave an impression when its double, near-black blooms open above its lacy foliage in April and May.

A Columbine from Europe, 'Black Barlow' is beloved in the US as a tried-and-true heirloom variety.

Aquilegia 'Black Barlow' Columbine thrives in moderately fertile, well-draining soil in light shade to shade. It is great for woodland settings and is usually unbothered by deer. Hummingbirds and butterflies, however, can't seem to get enough!

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
