Whether you're a human or a hummingbird, this is going to be one of your favorite flowers. 'Little Lanterns' Columbine, also called Wild Red Columbine, Canadian Columbine and Eastern Red Columbine, is famous world wide. It's commonly seen growing all the way from Canada to the Gulf Coast, and is a good garden plant almost anywhere. These plants literally cover themselves with their famous, bobbing red and yellow flowers in spring.
Allen Armitage tells us even Thomas Jefferson cultivated this native wildflower at Monticello! It belongs in every American wildflower garden.
