This was one of the first Aquilegia that we planted when we moved here, 23 years ago.

That's very dark for Nora.

The light's made it look a wee bit darker than it should - but not much though.
I bought a few clumps of her, do you think it was labelled wrongly .... is there another similar ???

There's been a lot of breeding going on with Nora and there are a few other named ones now in the Barlow family. To see the true colour of Nora have a look at http://www.geoffhandley.com/Gardening/flowergallery/AquilegiaNoraBarlow.jpg
It's a more wishy-washy pink than yours. I've just seen that Suttons Seeds are selling plants very similar to yours as 'Nora'. For a definative answer you would have to contact one of the National Collection holders, Carrie Thomas or John Drake.
