Aquilegia hinkleyana (Hinkley's Columbine)

Life: Perrenial

Size: 24"

Light: Partial Shade

Water: Normal, Well-Drained

Soil: Loamy

Native to the Big Bend area of Texas, this columbine with large yellow flowers that attract both butterflies and hummingbirds is one of the few that is perennial this far south. They make excellent cut flowers, along with their interesting maidenhair fern-like foliage, and do well in both beds and containers. After flowering, remove dead leaves to encourage new growth. It often reseeds.
