Nora Barlow Columbine is a cultivar of Aquilegia vulgaris named around 1890, but a similar form was known as far back as the sixteenth century.  This form was named for Nora Barlow, granddaughter of Charles Darwin, who herself was a hybridizer of various flowers, including columbines.  Although Lady Barlow's own preference was for simple flowers, she grew this form in her garden in Buckinghamshire, England.  The flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
