Hi,
Can't argue with the 'Flore Pleno' part, but this plant, shown in your two photos, can't be described as Aquilegia chrysantha - it lacks the characteristic, extremely long, splayed spurs. That, along with the bicolor pattern, show that it's a hybrid at best. Smiling

Only this image is mine, the other came from Annie's Annual's as the caption shows. So do you suggest I move them to the generic columbine entry?

Whatever you think is appropriate. (The point is just that the plants in these two photos are not representative at all of Aquilegia chrysantha.)
Thanks!
