Aquilegia canadensis

Common name: Columbine

Native plant

An interesting addition to any landscape, this plant is unique in the appearance of both its foliage and its flowers.  Foliage is 3-lobed and matte-like, and grows in a bush-like habit.  With reddish pink sepals and bright yellow stamens and anthers, the hanging flowers have the appearance of little lanterns glowing in the landscape.  Not only a joy for humans, these beautiful flowers attract many pollinators, including bees and hummingbirds.
