'Corbett' Columbine

HortScience 30(1): 165
'Corbett' Columbine
Aquilegia canadensis Corbett was derived from a wild population discovered on an abandoned railbed at Corbett, Baltimore County, Maryland, in 1985. Corbett differs from other plants of the species in height, habit and flower colour. Up to 6 weeks of flowering is possible, commencing in April, when 3-8 nodding flowers (2.5-5 cm long) are produced at or above the height of the uppermost leaves. The five petaloid sepals are ovate and ~1.5 cm long, and of a light pastel shade of yellow (RHS 2D).
