Red Columbine is a delightful native perennial. Its ornamental qualities make it perfect for a variety of partly shaded native plant areas. The plants grow as a clump of foliage, with flowers on stems above. The foliage is a very nice bright green in color. If kept watered, it will keep a nice appearance through the spring and summer months. The flowers are bell-shaped, approximately 1 to 2 inches in size. They are red in color, with yellow accents at the end of the petals. These flowers typically bloom mid spring. Great for attracting hummingbirds!
Aquilegia canadensis grows to a height of 2 to 3 feet, with a spread of 12 to 18 inches. It is recommended for USDA climate zones 3 to 8. Red Columbine typically does best in partial sunlight. It does well with moderate amounts of moisture in well drained soils. After establishment, it is said to have good drought tolerance.
