This is an erect, plant, up to 2 ft. tall, surely understood for its gaudy blooms. A gesturing, red and yellow blossom with upward impelled petals rotating with spreading, shaded sepals and various yellow hanging underneath the petals. The compound leaves, separated into round-lobed threes, are alluring in their own way.
It is accounted for that Native Americans rubbed the pounded seeds on the hands of men as an affection charm. Aquilegia canadensis promptly hybridizes with the prevalent Southwestern yellow columbines (A. chrysantha, and so forth.), yielding some striking yellow-and-red shading mixes in the blooms. This sort has been alluded to as the bloom for the masses. Once began, Columbine spreads or self polinates rapidly without any help.
