Rocky Mountain Columbine

Plant Details

Plant Type: Perennial
Plant Family: Ranunculaceae
Plant Description: The state flower of Colorado. Gorgeous purple-blue and white flowers make it a must-have in high elevation gardens. It's leaves are deeply lobed and mid-green. In lower elevations, keep this perennial in the shade and provide moderate amounts of water.


Perennial - Herbaceous (soft-stemmed plants that die in winter and regrow in spring): Remove spent blooms to promote rebloom later. Some plants tend to flop over after the first bloom and attempt to regrow from the base; in these cases, the old stems can be cut away in the summer. As plants become dormant in the fall, remove dead leaves and stems.
