Himalayan Columbine ABJUN01/01 : 8 posts by 5 authors. 4 images.
Yesterday on my walk down to a water stream (nullah) with my children I spotted a few of these beautiful flowers. Between 1800 and 1850 m I saw several plants. Here are some of the photographs.
Please correct me if I am identifying it wrong.

Beautiful pics. A nice humble flower with five spurs.
Missing leaves here.

very nice closeups of a short violet columbine. love it. waiting for the leaves like  … said and basal rosette if there are visible

Thank you … Here are the leaves. If I go again that side I will make more photos. The light was very low that day and it was windy making it difficult to take clear photos.

Columbines have been out for almost a week and I found several plants today on a mountain path. Here are some photos of the fresh flowers and seed pods.

Kindly identify this herb with maroon flowers photographed on the trail to Manimahesh at the altitude of about 2000 metres in June 2017.

Must be some species of Aquilegia (Ranunculaceae).
Aquilegia in eFI.

Could this be Aquilera pubiflora?
