Use the graceful columbine for colorful bouquets, with the best time for cutting the opening of the first flowers. Akeleien are bred in many beautiful colors.

If you want to preserve the “original colors“, you should not mix the varieties. They otherwise cross themselves and the offspring look quite different from the parents. Many akelean lovers appreciate this effect and regard the seedlings as valuable unique pieces. And that is the beauty of the garden, that everyone can be happy with it!.
