Aquilegia Origami Series/Butterfly Series

The Origami series has been developed over many years by Goldsmith Seeds. Sometimes known in Britain as the Butterfly Series, under which name it was introduced by Three Counties Nursery in 2000, plants require no vernalisation so will flower in about 20 weeks from a spring sowing.

In North America plants and seeds are available from a number of cources. Search the web for Aquilegia Origami here.
