- card information
Columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris L.)
Only one Columbine found in Britain is truly wild. Others have been introduced or are garden escapees. The typical wild plant grows in copses and open woods. It is a tall plant two feet or more high, and elegant in all its parts. The curved hollow tubes which terminate the five petals give the flower a unique shape. The leaves too are beautiful for they are divided and subdivided in forms of three.
