Very pretty columbine, although it doesn't have the form of 'Blue Barlow' and instead appears to be the product of cross-pollination (probably of 'Blue Barlow' with other columbines in the garden). Columbines cross-pollinate and hybridize very readily in garden conditions and even in nature, which often results in seed-grown plants lacking the characteristics of the cultivars or species of the original plants.
Would you mind asking to have the photo moved to the general Columbines photo page?
