American Columbine - Aquilegia Canadensis 6/20/12

American columbine is red, a color that most attracts the ruby-throated hummingbird. Not coincidentally, hummingbirds are the only creatures that can easily sip the nectar from the flowers and, in so doing, pollinate them.

Red columbine begins growth early in spring. Flowering occurs from
March to July, fruiting from June to August, seed release in early to
mid autumn.
