Aquilegia coerulea ‘Sunshine’ from California-GS15012021-1
Aquilegia coerulea E. James Cultivar: ‘Sunshine’

The cultivar is characterised by yellow flowers. There is some confusion in spellings of specific epithet. Whereas POWO, Catalogue of Life and IPNI and Wikipedia (which is generally reliable) use coerulea, TPL, WFO, TROPICOS and some websites use caerulea, and to add to the confusion some websites even use x caerulea.

Perhaps spellings in our website may also need correction. there is one post by … from Srinagar

Beautiful Plant for Id:
find attached photo Taken BY My friend Dr Nidhan Singh for id
At present i don’t have much details


Not Delphinium, which has only one spur. It has five spurs and as such is an Aquilegia species.



it is Aquilegia formosa. I have  photographed this flower at Srinagar last year. It is a beautiful flower. I am sending the photo of the flower taken by me in Srinagar.


the plant is undoubtedly Aquilegia formosa



here is one more in different color shot at the same garden.


This appears close to images at Aquilegia coerulea James
