Aquilegia canadensis 'Corbett'

Wild columbine

Aquilegia candensis ‘Corbett’ is a compact, completely yellow version of our native columbine. It produces yellow lantern flowers from April to May and does best in part shade to full shade in average, well-drained soil. ‘Corbett’ comes true from seed and will self-seed in gardens in the right growing conditions. Just like our native columbine, this cultivar is attractive to hummingbirds.
