Wild Columbine – Aquilegia Canadensis
The delicate Wild Columbine has a Latin name, meaning “water collector.” It comes in various colors, and the truly unique beauty that causes it to stand apart from other blooms is the inner flower is framed like a picture by a contrasting colored flower. It loves sunshine but needs shade in the summer part of the day.
Its average height reaches 12 inches, but some can grow up to 3 feet. Not fast-growing, each plant holds plenty of spring blooms, over and over again in one spring. One would categorize it as a hardy perennial.
Colors range from cream, violet, periwinkle, orange, yellow, and red. They are a welcome and decorative addition to any garden, potted or in the ground, because of beauty and ease of care.
Plant soil should fill any pot or area in the ground, rich and moist. Watering, depending on where you live, should be every third day. Too much water will turn leaves, oval and round-toothed, to turn yellow.
It is suggested to break several plants up and grow them separately when brought home from the nursery. They love lots of room, so any potted Columbine should be for only one plant and main root.
Feed them once each month with a liquid spray and combine it with fresh soil with plant food, mainly containing Vitamin B, to prevent transplant shock.
Hummingbirds are sure to visit your garden because of their attraction to this flower. This plant self germinates and lasts for several years if well-tended. The height of its bloom season is in April and May. Its native soil in Quebec, Canada, flourishes south to Florida and the east reaching Texas, but it’s genuinely splendid in Virginia. Any garden graced with Columbine is a garden pleasurable to spend time in!
