Is this a weed?

Debbie Massey asked 11 years ago

I am attaching a picture of a plant which appears each year in my garden – my husband says it is a weed, but it doesnt appear to be invasive and the flowers it produces are very nice. I would love to know what it is called.

This is columbine or grannys bonnet, aquilegia which is a native plant, and a valued garden flower. Yours is probably an escape from another garden, seed carried in somehow.It can be grown form seeds.
