Using native perennial plants in your garden helps us retain our natural history and the beauty and diversity of Penn’s Woods.
Natives are well-adapted to our climate and are generally easy to care for once they are established. They support native wildlife, including insects, and are often favorites of our very important pollinators, such as bees, butterflies and moths, and hummingbirds.
This one is Wild Columbine (aquilegia canadensis) which grows to 2- to 3-feet tall and blossoms with graceful, drooping red and yellow flowers in spring and early summer. It likes shady forests and edges of woods, preferring shade but doing well in full sun as well.
