These Columbines were captured at the top of Copper Mountain on the Hallelujah Loop at 11,350 feet! I was on a hike with my daughter exploring this beautiful mountain and couldn't go any further, so she went ahead to the top and returned with this majestic image of our beautiful Colorado state flower, The Blue Columbine. I dedicate this one to Maddie for capturing this treasure! I hope you love it as much as we do!

Here are some fun facts about our beautiful state flower! Of all the wildflowers in bloom in Colorado’s outdoors from April to July each year, the Columbine is the most rare and revered. Its status as the official State Flower makes it a beautiful emblem of the Centennial State.

The Columbine’s journey to become the Colorado state flower began in 1891 when Colorado school children voted the Rocky Mountain Columbine their favorite flower. It won by a landslide – of the 22,316 votes cast, 14,472 went to the Rocky Mountain Columbine. The Columbine is protected! In 1925, (that's almost 100 years ago now) the General Assembly enacted a law to protect the rare and delicate state flower. The statute made it illegal to uproot the flower on public lands. Columbines may not be picked at all on private land without the consent of the landowner. Hummingbirds love Columbines and are it's main pollinator. Also, it is said that the Native Americans of this region used the Columbine as a herbal remedy. They would treat ailments from fever to heart tension and even poison ivy pain with Columbine-infused tea. This is my absolute favorite flower and I am so happy to make this amazing card available for you and others to enjoy!
