Red Columbine


Red columbine, or wild columbine, is a native wildflower here in Minnesota. The flower is usually red, although sometimes it can be more pink, and is bell shaped. I took this pic at the Necedah NWR in central Wisconsin.

And I had to buy my perennials or I wouldn't have any. I like the wild ones a lot better. I don't think I have one in my blog, Our Flower Pot.
