Wild Columbine

Aquilegia canadensis

Description:

18" tall. Flowers- 1 1/2" Drooping, red and yellow bells, with long, red upward-projecting spurs. Leaves light green, long stalked, divided and subdivided into threes. Blooms: May-June

Habitat:

Rocky woods and ledges

Notes:

The only thing that does not match the description of my Columbine photo is the red and yellow. The flowers of my Columbine is pink and white. The flowers are exactly like the picture in my photo book. The leaves were a major identifying feature because of this. This may not be wild? But I have seen this growing in other places, both wild and domestic. Source: Nat'l Audubon Society Field Guide to New England by Peter Alden and Brian Cassie In the Buttercup family.
