A purple nearly black columbine flower (Aquilegia vulgaris). Blossoms are approximately one to two inches and without the tail or spur associated with other varieties. Anecdotally, we’ve heard this is one holds up well in cut flower bunches. Plants are perennial; first year foliage reaches about two feet tall and flowers come the second year. Self-reseeding, so getting a little stand of these plants going is easy in the long run.
First year foliage, second year flowers. Perennial.
