Columbine agg. - Aquilegia
The usual form has flowers that are purple-blue or violet in colour, but there are a number of garden varieties and hybrids are frequent. For this reason we have treated Aquilegia vulgaris as an aggregate.
Occurs as a naturalised garden escape in woodland and on disturbed ground.
Flowers May to July.
Widespread and fairly frequent as a casual in Britain.
Occasional as a naturalised garden escape in Leicestershire and Rutland. In the 1979 Flora survey of Leicestershire it was found in 10 of the 617 tetrads.
