Care instructions Cut back stems after flowering or leave to self-seed. Self-sown aquilegias look charming naturalised amongst shrubs and roses, however, the plants interbreed freely and seedlings are rarely much like the parents. Cut down leaves in autumn, or earlier if affected by fungal diseases.
