The elegant and stunning Columbine with the blue of the peaks, the pristine white of the snow and the yellow gold of the Planes is Colorado’s State Flower. A magnificently hearty little perennial she scatters herself across the Great Rocky Mountains in the Goddess' sweet spring. She can be grown in a garden with good drainage and a little shade from the high heat. I have had mine last until mid-summer. There are many colors, but the blue belongs to my home, Colorado.
