These unusual maroon blossoms are native to parts of northern Asia and Europe. It thrives in dry, sunny spots in open forests or on rocky slopes. Due to decreasing natural habitat and over-picking, this species has become threatened in some areas; it can be found on the Red List of endangered plants in Switzerland. The name “columbine” is derived from the Latin “columba,” or dove, since an upside down columbine bloom looks like a circle of doves around a fountain. The Latin genus name “Aquilegia” means “eagle,” a reference to the spikes on the back of the flower that resemble an eagle’s talons.
