Red Columbine Wildflower Seeds
Red Columbine is an elegant perennial herb with nodding red flowers and spurs.
The name Columbine refers to a "dove" as the arched flower petals and spurs resemble five perched doves arranged in a ring. Red Columbine grows up to 1m (3ft) tall, and the flowers bloom from May to August.
It is found in a variety of moist, partly shaded to sunny sites, including meadows, rocky slopes, and clearings. Red Columbine is common in lowlands to alpine meadows from the west coast to the Rocky Mountains.
Hummingbirds and long-tongued butterflies thrive on the nectar of Columbine.
