|Telesonix jamesii at Denver Botanic Gardens|
|Here it is in nature, much as James must have seen it himself 200 years ago this past Tuesday|
|Original herbarium specimen of Telesonix|
Also growing on Pikes Peak, and one of many plants collected by James, the Colorado alpine columbine was not named from this, the first specimen ever collected, but only named decades later by another collector. John Torrey was manifestly overwhelmed by so many novelties, quite a few, like this, were overlooked.
