Rocky Mt. Columbine – Aquilegia caerulea


The state flower and the logo of our own Colorado Native Plant Society, it is hard to beat the handsome Aquilegia coerulea for elegance and beauty. Graceful back-sweeping long spurs, creamy white petals and violet-blue sepals make this an outstanding flower. It grows into a bushy, upright clump around two feet tall and 18 inches wide; they are fairly short-lived, from three to five years, but will self-seed readily. They adapt to a variety of soils but prefer rich, moist but well-drained, sites with light to moderate shade. They attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. And people.
