Wild Columbine (Aquilegia canadensis) is a seasonal plant with red and yellow flowers from spring to early summer. They prefer moist to dry soil in part sun or shade, but they can tolerate full sun. They can grow up to 3 feet tall and are a good choice for banks and slopes. Companion plants include Lady Fern (Athyrium felix-femina) and Great Blue Lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica).
Wild Columbine is not a particularly long-lived perennial, but will self-seed if conditions are favorable.
