Another lovely Aquilegia but this time one that's native to the Southwestern United States. I wonder if the folks there like their native Columbine as much as I like ours? It is a clear yellow and grows from one to three feet tall, blooming from late spring to early summer. It is pollinated by bees, moths, and butterflies. Zones 4-8. Note: It is recommended to grow different species of Columbine widely separated to prevent cross-pollination. I have never done this and have never encountered cross-pollination, but it's good to know. Information about sowing Columbine seeds can be found in the description of Aquilegia canadensis.
