General Information

Aquilegia caerulea is a species of Aquilegia flower native to the Rocky Mountains from Montana south to New Mexico and west to Idaho and Arizona. Its common name is Colorado Blue Columbine; sometimes it is called "Rocky Mountain Columbine", but this properly refers to Aquilegia saximontana.

It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 2060 cm tall. The flowers are very variable in color, from pale blue (as in the species name caerulea) to white, pale yellow and pinkish; very commonly the flowers are bicolored, with the sepals a different shade to the petals.

Aquilegia caerulea is the state flower of Colorado. It is also a popular ornamental plant in gardens, with numerous cultivars selected for different flower colors.

There are five varieties:

* Aquilegia caerulea var. alpina
* Aquilegia caerulea var. caerulea
* Aquilegia caerulea var. daileyae
* Aquilegia caerulea var. ochroleuca
* Aquilegia caerulea var. pinetorum
