Aquilegia can. Little Lanterns

Little Lanterns Wild Columbine

This power packed little gem looks too small to produce the abundance of flowers it does from April to June but seeing is believing as wave after wave of brilliant red backed, yellow corolla flowers cover this plant for weeks on end. These flowers hang like horned bells above a dense, tight foliage mound and provide the earliest source of nectar for hummingbirds available in the spring landscape. 'Little Lanterns also provides a caterpillar food source for a number of out_standing native butterflies. It's a little plant that does it all and can even do it in dry, shadier areas that tend to be difficult to landscape in. Plant this in groups and prepare for the spring show.
