I only recently discovered that one of the common names for this Aquilegia is “columbine” which sounds so much nicer. It’s also known as “Granny’s Bonnet”. They seem to come in a huge variety of colours and sizes from really tiny through to this much large flower. The smaller varieties seem to be a single colour whilst the variegated one are generally larger. Either way I think they are quite striking flowers!
