Medium 24". zone 3-8. An older variety that is being reintroduced. Double flowers of rich, dark red. Like all Columbines, likes a moist spot in rich soil.

Aquilegia x hybrida 'Ruby Port' has a habit similar to Nora Barlows. The blooms are a wine red, and the foliage is often burnished with red, as well. Since columbine are inclined to cross polinate, it is best to purchase live plants or purchase seed which has been monitored during pollination.
