I think this is a columbine, but just wanted to check. Does anyone know which one?

hopflower writes: Not a McKana's Giant, for sure. It is the old-fashioned Granny's Bonnet or double flowered type of (Aquilegia) columbine. It could be Tower Pink. Posted: 10:09 am on May 29th
jtandrip writes: There is a good chance that it is a double columbine. Quite possibly the Cultivar 'Nora Barlow'. They have the tight compact flowers and an abundance of petals giving it that "double" appearance. Posted: 10:07 am on May 29th

Aguilegia caerulea. thes r the largest of the columbine and are produce because columbine species all cross polinate leaving behind a fabulouse array of color and size.
