Aquilegia canadensis, American Columbine
Sold in a strip of 4 deep plugs for $38.00
These deep plugs are typically the preferred size for plants that are shallow-rooted. The additional width of these plugs allows for horizontal growth of the roots, which benefits many species of ferns and sedges.
Each individual plug measures 2 ¼” x 2 ¼” across by 4” deep.
These plugs are landscape-ready, but also offer a head start should you be interested in potting them up.
American columbine has a delicate yet alien appearance due to its rear facing spurs and forward facing stamens. This particular species' flowers bear a combination of reddish and yellowish colors. The foliage is blue-green and very attractive as well. American columbine will tolerate a wide range of light and soil conditions so long as it remains well drained. It has an extensive natural range, and may bloom from early April into June.
