Wordless Wednesday—Aquilegia canadensis (Eastern red columbine)

The first flowers of Aquilegia canadensis (Eastern red columbine) began opening 12 days ago, March 26, 2017, during the big mulch weekend. Now they are nodding gracefully throughout several of the borders.

    It is tricky here for it to come back or not cross breed so I love seeing it wherever it comes up….I am well but my shoulder is still slow to heal so little blogging going on and virtually no writing….and slow small steps with gardening….right now it is seed starting inside and out….can’t wait to see the first seeds germinating outside!

      Cathy, it’s too bad they don’t do well in your area. They’re fairly rampant here and migrate all around the borders, but I give them free reign and pull them out occasionally.

    How lovely to have them bloom en masse like that! Aquilegia isn’t a reliable bloomer here, although I’ve some hope of getting flowers from the one plant that made it through our 5 years of drought.
