Colorado Columbines

There are well over 70 species of Columbines. One of those species happens to grow right in our very own backyard in Colorado.

Aquilegia Coerulea which is also known as “Colorado Blue Columbines.” They can be found in many locations like someone’s backyard, in the high country along hiking trails, alpine lakes or near mountain tops like a Fourteener (14,000-foot mountain). It is very common to find columbines during the summer months. Most commonly in the latter part of June through August. This particular columbine occurs mainly in Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, and extreme southern Montana according to the Forest Service. It attracts photographers and other outdoor enthusiasts to get a glimpse of its columbines and makes for a beautiful photograph for any purposes.
