The Western Columbine is a native perennial with delicate, blue-green, lobed foliage and pendent, yellow and red, spurred flowers. Handsome blossoms hang at ends of branches above this bushy plant! The species name formosa, Latin for beautiful, aptly describes this large plant, especially when it has hundreds of lovely flowers nodding over it! The flower attracts hummingbirds! The flowers are edible, with a sweet taste, and the nectar was eaten as a candy by the Gitxsan and Wetsuweten peoples! However, the other parts of the plant, including the seeds are poisonous if ingested. Does well in moist areas!
