This wonderful Mexican columbine creates a big statement in a border. Its tall stalks carry an abundance of outward-facing, large, bright lemon-yellow flowers with long spurs. Be aware that they do spread prolifically, and stop this happening by removing the dead flowerheads. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

I am at a loss to the fact that the yellow Aquilegia seems to have a pink vabascum type flower at the top of the page, or I have gone colour blind over night, not really useful at all good job I know what the flower should look like.
The flower in the picture is definitely a Lavatera or Malva.
