Aquilegia canadensis ‘Little Lanterns’
CT DR P
Showy lantern-like flowers cover this plant from April to June. A dense mounded perennial with delicate lobed leaves topped by sprays of nodding red-yellow flowers with distinctive backward spurs that contain nectar attractive to long-tongued insects and hummingbirds. This compact variety grows 8-10 inches tall and wide. Prefers moist soils in light to moderate shade, but also easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. As long as drainage is good, it will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, including drought. A good choice for borders, open shade gardens, woodland gardens, along woodland pathways, or naturalized areas. Also a good selection for hummingbird gardens. Deer resistant.
