Aquilegia

Aquilegia (Columbine plants) is a genus of clump-forming, short-lived perennials noted for their late spring to midsummer blooms of single or double, short-spurred or spurless flowers, in a variety of colors ranging from blue to violet to white to pink to red. A classic element of herbaceous borders, Columbines self-sow without being invasive and often attract hummingbirds.
