Aquilegia flabellata nana....I love this little columbine
It's growing on the wall beneath the Styrax 'Carillon' across Hickey Hill Road from the weeping Katsura. The flowers are stocky not graceful like other columbines but there's something endearing about the compact little plants that reseed a bit producing plants that are sometimes perennial for years and years. This one's been in the wall for at least 3 years.
