 it seems like you just have to buy the book.
I just did. A great group of plants!
I grow a very few Aquilegia and Semiaquilegia ecalcarata.
They are a nightmare to keep pure.Even A.chyrsantha which flowers later than vulgaris eventually produced hybrid offspring.
I have sown my entire woodland with garden origin Aquilegia vulgaris that I had spent 20 years rogueing to get as close to the species as possible.They still produce some pinks and whites in different shapes all these years later. I try now to keep just the pure whites in the garden itself. And now rogue out the worst "offenders" in the woods.
