Plant Features

Songbird Cardinal Aquilegia Plants feature large, long-spurred, upward-facing, red and white bi-colored blooms on compact, bushy plants. Flowers measure 3-inches! Columbines are easy to grow and thrive in moist, well-drained soils. Full sun is okay in northern gardens; afternoon shade is preferred in southern gardens. Well suited to cottage gardens, at woodland edges, and are excellent in containers and as cut flowers. Aquilegia attracts hummingbirds and butterflies while deer and rabbit tend to avoid it.
