I am hoping someone could ID this. We found it whilst brook trout fishing last summer (2012) and I was not able to make it back to the spot after it flowered. Definitely going back this summer to locate and photograph better. I am unsure if it is the common native Columbine, or Meadow Rue. They are very tall plants (probably 3ft+), and dotted all over the area not far from a brook. Soil is rich, and slightly damp, but probably not damp all year. The foliage color really got my attention, even from a distance. I couldn't believe just how many plants were there. Definitely prolific. In the same area grows the Fiddlehead fern and some Nodding Trillium (rare). https://www.dropbox.com/s/dmn7ebb0c2joret/IMAG0304.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/97te6ii79id99q8/IMAG0305.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/ngxijnn1z4tgjz8/IMAG0306.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/lra7vlch83ktyw1/IMAG0309.jpg Sorry the photos are not more clear. They were taken on my cellphone.
