Artist's Description

Aquilegia canadensis
Buttercup family (Ranunculaceae)

Wildflower native to the midwest (USA)
Taken in northern Illinois

Featured in ONE SINGLE FLOWER ON DISPLAY

Habitats include rocky open woodlands, wooded slopes, sandy savannas, thinly wooded bluffs, shaded areas of limestone cliffs, limestone glades, fens and bogs, openings in logged woodlands, and areas along railroad tracks. Occasional wildfires and other kinds of disturbance in wooded areas are probably beneficial in maintaining populations of this plant.

Cultivated columbines, sold by nurseries, usually have Aquilegia vulgaris (European Columbine) as one or both of the parents. While the flowers of Wild Columbines are always some shade of red, the flowers of cultivated Columbines are often other colors, including pink and blue. lavender and white. The flowers in cultivated columbines are also much larger than their wild relatives (this one was very tiny — less than an inch).
