Columbine

♦ Zones:  3 - 8     Height:  24"     Exposure:  Full Sun to Part Shade ♦

Wild columbine is a natural for the woodland garden, especially one with rocky or calcareous soils. Let it establish and reseed itself in a semi-shady corner of the yard or along a wooded path.  This is a great plant for a rock garden or a stone wall. Wild columbine also makes a nice potted plant.  Even if it never bloomed, wild columbine would deserve a place in the woodland garden for the beauty of its graceful lacy leaves that seem to float above the ground. But wild columbine does bloom, and the dainty flowers are produced over a long spring and summer season and often more than once per year. Hummingbirds and bumblebees are the only creatures with long enough tongues to extract the sweet nectar from the long tubelike spurs.
