Happy Surprise

This morning, I went outside to check if my columbines had bloomed yet so I could get a picture. 
What I thought was my pink and white Grandma’s bonnet, which was what I had planted in that spot two years previous, was this….

Apparently my Magpie, a black and white columbine, has cross pollinated with Granny here and this is the happy result.  Sadly though, my grandma’s bonnet is nowhere to be found. I will have to start another one soon. 
I wonder though, if I saved the seeds from this new cross, if it would come back true or revert back to the Magpie, like most hybrids do…. Hmmm. 
I’ll let ya’ll know next year!
