Seeds and Things Columbine Eastern Red 50+ Seeds Attracts Hummingbirds and Butterflies

Aquilegia canadensis, or Columbine, is a well-known and popular perennial that is very attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. The foliage is lacey looking and bluish green in color. This variety, Eastern Red, is native to the United States, and it has bell-shaped flowers of red with a yellow corolla. The bloom season is late spring through the first of summer, and after the blooms are spent, cut the plant back, and the foliage still adds an attractive ground cover. These perennials add beauty to meadows, woodlands, and look wonderful in natural settings. Columbines prefer full sun to partial shade and rich well-drained soil. They are hardy plants, and they are usually resistant to deer. Start the seeds directly outside in a sunny location in early spring. The cold temperatures help to break the dormancy of the seed. Use 3 – 4 seeds per plant and space them about 16 inches apart, press the seed into soil but do not cover it and keep the seed moist. Once temperatures warm, around 68F, germination is usually within 28 days. In areas with a late spring, the seed can be started indoors 6 – 8 weeks before the last frost is expected and transplanted outside when frost danger has passed. Columbines readily reseed themselves.

Product Features

  • Features: Attracts hummingbirds, and butterflies. Deer resistant
  • Grows from Canada south to northern Florida Height: 32 inches
  • This is a relatively low maintenance perennial

This flower releases a unique fragrance that will carry through the blossoms. Once the blooming has slowed down, trim back the flowers with a hedge trimmer or a pair of small clippers to help promote more growth and continued blooms. Alyssum will grow anywhere between 3 and 6 inches tall.

Lobularia maritima, common name Sweet Alyssum or Sweet Alison, also commonly referred to as just Alyssum from the genus in which it was formerly classified, is a low-growing flowering plant in the family Brassicaceae, native to the Mediterranean region andMacaronesia (Canary Islands, Azores).

It is an annual plant (rarely a short-lived perennial plant) growing to 10-30 cm tall. The leaves are 1-4 cm long and 3-5 mm broad, oval to lanceolate, with an entire margin. The flowers are sweet-smelling white (rarely pink or lavender), with four petals; they are produced throughout the growing season, or year-round in areas free of frost.

Cultivation and uses
Lobularia maritima is best planted in early spring, but requires little maintenance when growing. It will flower more profusely if spent blooms are trimmed. When grown in gardens, it is typically used as ground cover, as it rarely grows higher than 20 cm tall.

It prefers partial shade, and is resistant to heat and drought. Plants with darker-colored flowers do better in cooler temperatures.
