One of the earliest wildflowers to bloom, Aquilegia canadensis, is easily grown in average, moist soil in shade to part shade. The bell-like red and yellow flowers are very attractive to hummingbirds. Bees and the larvae of other insects also enjoy the plant. The root system is fibrous and occasionally produces rhizomes.
