Aquilegia canadensis, Columbine

A cherished Missouri native perennial, Columbine, Aquilegia canadensis, delights with charming, dangling blossoms of red and yellow. Columbine works wonderfully in small gardens, woodland gardens, and naturalized areas. Columbine’s distinctive lobed leaves look fantastic all season, creating a lacy, soft landscape. With blossoms appearing in late spring into early summer, it’s an early nectar source for hummingbirds and butterflies.

Columbine live for 2-3 years or so, but reseed nicely given a good home. Occasionally leaf miners or sawfly may burrow into the leaves. Trim off and discard affected leaves and new foliage will soon emerge. Deer and rabbit resistant.
