Description
This is the all-red selection from the famous McKana columbine group. Like the Russell Lupines and other definitive groups of perennials, the McKana Columbines have never been surpassed. With clear, bright-colored flowers, these are sizable plants, growing up to 30 or more. Their show in the garden can be truly spectacular. These famous flowers were bred by combining both the North American native columbines with others from abroad. The McKanas also include some of the unique fully-double hybrids.

The Wild Columbines Many people think columbines are the loveliest flowers of all, and they are certainly important in the wildflower world. Many important species are North American natives. Everyone in the Northeast loves the Wild Eastern Columbine, the beautiful smallish red one, Aquilegia canadensis, and of course, everyone in the Rockies loves the State Flower of Colorado, the large, blue Colorado Columbine, A. caerulea. There are important species native to Europe and Japan as well.
