I have lived in Colorado for 3 years and saw my first columbine flower this summer. It is the state flower of Colorado and is also known as the Rocky Mountain Columbine. If you are feeling smart you can call it by its real name, aquilegia saximontana. I had to hike to 10,000 feet to see this rare flower. Have you ever seen one?
P.S. It is illegal to pick a columbine flower on public land.
