Rocky Mountain Columbine

The delicate blue hue of the Rocky Mountain Columbine, also known as the Colorado Columbine, makes it truly one of the most beautiful blooms in existence. It doesn't have a lot of flash like the King Protea or elegant lines like the calla lily, but chances are if you imagine a simple, beautiful flower, something very close to the Rocky Mountain Columbine will come to mind. With its long, thin stem and lavender and white petals, the flower radiates natural, uncomplicated beauty -- and it's all the more remarkable for it!
