I make and collect angels (read about that here), but this living angel is a first.
I found it on the discount shelf at Lowe's.
Blue Angel Columbine
Aguilegia flabellata 'Blue Angel'
I planted it in May without any expectations of blooms this year, but a few week's ago I was delighted to see these pretty violet blooms appear.
Blue Angel Columbine blooms spring to summer and likes morning sunlight. It's water needs are low once established and it has a nice compact mounding growth habit.
I don't know where the name "Blue Angel" came from.
I suspect it has nothing to do with this Roy Orbison song.
