found one clump of flowers in rocky sandy ditch in Alaska. flowers were reddish to pinkish. leaves were clumped in bush at bottom of plant. Wife thought it looked like columbine, but no luck at finding a columbine match. columbine leaves were all pointed, not these.

    I wish I could see the flowers and the rest of the plant. But these fruits/seedpods with the compound leaf shape look similar to a type of Columbine species (Aquilegia), possible crimson columbine/summer columbine (A. formosa). . But since there is no flower to confirm, if this is columbine, I can’t be certain of its species. Check out images of A. formosa’s seedpods from the link below. Best wishes!
