Aquilegia canadensis, Columbine, also called Red or American Columbine, is one of the first plants to provide nectar in the spring for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The colorful flowers are red flowing into yellow.  Besides being an early bloomer, Columbine will tolerate a large range of soil and sun types, so you'll have success with it in full sun as well as shade.  It can grow in pine tree areas and is deer-resistant.  The seeds of Aquilegia are shiny black pearls and can be easily collected and planted.

Dormant bare root plants ship each year during optimal transplanting season: Fall (October) or Spring (April/May).
 

Potted plants come in a tray of 38 plants and will ship when all plants in the tray are well-rooted and transit-ready, early May through June.
