    This beautiful woodland wildflower has showy, drooping, bell-like flowers equipped with distinctly backward-pointing tubes. These tubes, or spurs, contain nectar that attracts long-tongued insects and hummingbirds especially adapted for reaching the sweet secretion. It is reported that Native Americans rubbed the crushed seeds on the hands of men as a love charm.

    The Monticello Foundation reports that Thomas Mann Randolph, Jefferson's son-in-law, observed this perennial wildflower blooming on April 30, 1791, at Monticello. Jefferson may have sowed seed in the gardens, as this columbine's pendulous yellow and red flowers are among the most attractive of all native plants for a partially-shaded site. John Tradescant, an English plant explorer of the 17th century, introduced this species into European gardens.

    Sow the seed anytime during the growing season for flowers the following year. Once started, columbine propagates for years and, although perennial, increases rapidly by self-seeding.
