Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata 'Ruby Port'

Columbine

An aptly named variety that sports dark, ruby-red, spurless flowers from May through July. 

The foliage is a delicate ferny green which is often tinged purple. 

An  Aquilegia that performs best in moist but well drained soil in sun or partial shade and will definitely thrive in woodland clearings or at the edge of a tree-line. 

Will set seed but as the entire genus is promiscuous it is unlikely to come true.
