Aquilegia viridiflora 'Chocolate Soldier'

Columbine

This columbine cultivar, developed in 1902, has sweetly fragrant flowers with chocolate-purple petals and lime green stamens. 

It is much more compact than A. vulgaris and prefers an evenly moist soil with shelter from hot sun. 

The leaves are a delicate blue-green. 

Cut back hard after flowering. 

A little more fussy than the usual cottage garden types but a bit of a talking point.
