William Guinness' is an eye catching plant, a short-spurred columbine most noted for its graceful slender stems of nodding flowers each with deep black-purple petals surrounded by white central petals.
This clump-forming perennial has a bushy nature. The blooms appear in late spring and early summer above fern-like, mid-green leaves.
The unusual flowers of this old-fashioned columbine look equally at home in a cottage garden setting or in a more modern scheme with ornamental grasses. This classic cottage garden flower is particularly effective grown en masse.
