Aquilegia, columbine

Aquilegia     columbineAEuropian crowfoot

I hear that its science name, which is Aquilegia, comes from the word heron.
Columbine that I saw in the US and Canada were tall like a bush and they had beautiful large flowers.
It might be suitable for the climate of the North America Continental. Summer in Japan is too humid and hot for them to grow.
This is so small but it has many flowers in a small pot now. This size suits me, because I don't have garden.

Language of the flower.     Resolved to win (in case of purplr flower).
