European Columbine
Gemeine Akelei
Ancolie commune

Family: Ranunculaceae
Size: until 1.20m

In traditional herbalism columbine was considered sacred to Venus; carrying a posy of it was said arouse the affections of a loved one. Nicholas Culpeper recommended it to ease the pains of childbirth. In modern herbal medicine it is used as an astringent and diuretic (Wikipedia)

One of my favourite flowers. There are many different colors of Colombine, in our area however blue and purple are the most common.
