Trillium Ridge Flora and Fauna
Aquilegia canadensis 
Location: under dogwood, in meadow
A woodland classic, Columbine is one of our most popular plants for shady areas.The appearance of the lush bluish green foliage in early spring is a sure sign that winter is finally over. Hummingbirds flock to the intricate red and yellow flowers for a sip of nectar in spring, when few other flowers are available. Prefers well-drained sites and will actually thrive in dry, rocky soil in medium shade.This versatile plant also blooms profusely in full sun in a rich garden soil. Grows one to three feet tall. Plant a patch of Columbine and create a hummingbird haven!
