Loved by butterflies and hummingbirds.

The graceful, intricately patterned, colorful flowers of Aquilegia, or Columbine, are natural additions for spring color in perennial borders. The flowers are perfectly designed to hold the nectar that hummingbirds and butterflies love. The fan-shaped foliage is also exquisite. They delight in well-drained, humus-rich soil. Avoid locations with hot afternoon sun.
