Aquilegia vulgaris 'Ruby Port'
Aquilegia 'Ruby Port' is an heirloom columbine with dark red, double flowers in late spring. The dark flowers are especially nice when contrasted with the silvery-green foliage of Lychnis coronaria. Ruby Port columbine has tall stems for cutting. It's one of the first columbine varieties that I ever grew and still one of my favorites. A classic! Also called Granny's Bonnet. Shade tolerant. Hardy perennial in zones 4-9.
