Little Lanterns Native Columbine

A Butterfly and Hummingbird Magnet
If you want your garden to be more pollinator-friendly but don't have a lot of space available, this is the perfect choice. It only grows about 1' high and 1' wide, but it's a native plant and an absolute magnet for hummingbirds and butterflies! And while they're there, they're likely to visit your other flowers, too. There's a lot of things you can do with Little Lanterns, tuck it in a border, naturalize it in a woodland garden, spread it as a ground cover…. It grows well in sun AND shade! The intricate blooms are long-lasting and make good cut flowers. To top it all off, deer rarely show any interest in native columbine.
