Blue Columbine Flower, Colorado State Flower, Purple Background, Blue Flowers, US State Flowers

Designed by: Erica Catherine Illustration

Apart of Erica Catherine's US State Flower Collection, the Blue Columbine flower represents the State of Colorado. The blue flowers are shown on top of a purple color background. 

The Blue Columbine Flower was adopted as the state flower in 1899. Originally when naming the state flower, law makers were quite vague in the type of flower describing it as a lavender and white, but not naming any particular species. The Blue Columbine was discovered in 1820 by a climber named Edwin James on Pike's peak. The scientific name Columbine Aquilegia caerulea means "eagle" in reference to it's claw-like spurs that are at the base of the flower. The blue columbine is known for its unique shape and beautiful color flower can be quite rare. Endemic to Colorado, the columbine is found most often in elevations between 7.000 - 10,00 feet. It's so desired that it is threatened by collectors who wanted to grow it at their homes. In 1925 a law was enacted to keep the prized flowers in their natural habitats. The much loved flower was even honored in the song "Where the Columbines Grow" and was adopted as the state flower in 1915.

Inspired by the natural and antique details that call to Erica's Old soul, she aims to bring that special spirit to all of her designs. Each drawing is created by hand using a mixture of graphite drawing with watercolor layering over the top to create the ethereal and vintage inspired work that harks back to turn of the century botanical illustration.
