Hi,
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?
Thanks,
Lori
