I thought it was dust or something, but it doesn't wash off. This is in a wine barrel container.

Looks like powdery mildew to me. If so, try to give it better air circulation and keep the leaves dry (water the base only.) Remove the worst leaves and perhaps spray with a fungicide. Some people have success spraying it with milk.

Thanks. I think I may have overcrowded this container, difficult to water at the bases. We only have soy milk, doubt that would work.

Googled it and found some common household products that may work. I also may just put this plant somewhere else to ease the crowding.

Al ot of my Aquilegia get pretty ratty looking after they are well past bloom. I've found I can cut them back at that point and they'll be back next season looking no worse for wear.

I dug out an small area in the lawn for them and moved them (actually 2 plants, 2 different colors). We plan to turn the lawn into an arboretum anyway.
