Species from Tajikistan with sprays of deep violet flowers above tidy foliage. For most intents and purposes, it's a "standard mid-size columbine", whose leaf and flower shapes are similar to those of common columbine. A nice one, certainly.
|Fruiting bodies typical of columbines, pretty large compared to the flower size. In a few weeks, they'll turn tan/brown and be filled with rattling black seeds. |
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list
