“Western Columbine”

Thriving in poor well-drained soil, this enchanting California Columbine bursts into bloom in late Spring & (with water) well into Summer. Brilliant scarlet & yellow blooms swing from the ends of well-branched arching stems like pixie lanterns. Adaptable to many situations (it’s native to the entire West up into Alaska), you can grow it moist or dry. A nectar feast for hummers, butterflies & bees - & birds love the seeds. To 3’ x 2’. Self-sows.
