Columbine (Aquilegia canadensis)
The early blooms from Columbine provide some of the first nectar of the year for pollinators. The plant is also an all-time favorite of hummingbirds and serves as a host plant to Columbine Duskywing (Erynnis lucilius), a butterfly from the skipper family. The plant is deer resistant and tolerant of various sun and soil requirements, making it easy to adapt to to any type of garden.
