Aquilegia canadensis 'Corbett' (Wild columbine)

Aquilegia canadensis 'Corbett'

Wild columbine

Profuse show of butter-yellow, lantern-shaped flowers from April to May. Its short stature, delicate color and mid spring bloom time make it an ideal companion for spring bulbs! It was spotted by Lawrence Clemens who asked that it be named after the Corbett Historic District which is near Monkton in Baltimore County, Maryland.  Bluemont Nurseries, of Monkton, MD was the first to offer this charming local Aquilegia to the market.

Aquilegia canadensis 'Corbett' Growing and Maintenance Tips

Thrives in part to full shade in any well-drained soil. Plants tolerate full sun if temperatures are cool, but they prefer partial shade. They may go dormant in mid summer if stressed by heat or drought, but will emerge again in late winter. Plants reseed readily and plantings may double in size in two years.
