Squid in Pantaloons
I grew a pretty columbine from seed last year and it finally bloomed this spring. Boy, did it bloom! I think most of the flowers had at least two delicate rows of ruffles, but some had as many as five (!). I have no idea what cultivar it might be (or what cultivars the parents might have been, or even who originally gave me the seed), but I call it "Squid in Pantaloons." No doubt the big seed companies will want to change that name after they trip over themselves to get this beauty in their catalogs.
