A beautiful plant with graceful flowers that are highly attractive to hummingbirds, Columbines are a great addition to any garden. Aquilegia have a lot to offer with being drought-tolerant once established, partially shade tolerant and adaptive to a variety of soil conditions. The foliage of the columbine provides year round interest even when the plant isn’t in bloom. The foliage rosettes turn a maroon color in the fall and remain attractive throughout the dormant season.
