Aquilegia pyrenaica ex Pic d'Anie

There are dozens of species of Aquilegia, and hundreds of hybrids. The species range from small alpines from high in the mountains to tall plants from woods or meadows, which would be at home in a herbaceous border. The ones we offer include excellent and reliable rock garden plants and others that are unusual or new in cultivation. They come from all round the Northern Hemisphere. See also Semiaquilegia.

Aquilegia pyrenaica ex Pic d'Anie is quite a short plant, with deep purply-blue flowers. It is related to Aquilegia alpina, but it distinctly shorter, so is more suitable for the rock garden. This particular collection was made on the Pic d'Anie, a limestone peak in the Pyrenees. Where exactly? I quick search resulted in the latitude and longitude, given to no less than 14 decimal places. That is to about the diameter of a single atom!
