I love aquilegias (granny bonnets) and put a few new ones into the garden each year. I notice that after a while I lose my brightly coloured reds, yellows, blues etc and they all seem revert to a dull pink. Is this due to cross pollination from bees and what can I do about it? Should I dig out the plants that are reverting?

I dont know where these came from or if they are originally from seed etc, but I am going to guess that the cross pollination by insect theory is correct. What suppliers (usually) offer are stable F1 seeds, divisions, cuttings etc that wont change as described in the first season&&but I dont know how long that promise lasts. I think digging out and renewing is the best way to keep colours true to original.
