Aquilegia canadensis 'Corbett'

Corbett's columbine

This is an easy, compact and versatile Aquilegia that blooms in early spring. 

Reaching only a foot high, the many stemmed branches are laden with masses of delicate butter yellow lanterns that look superb with spring bulbs and early plants such as primula. 

The foliage is mid-green, smooth and rounded. 

An excellent plant for the front of a woodland or partially shaded border. 

It's a yellow sport of the taller, red version of Canadian columbine and was a chance discovery. It's named after the Corbett Historic District in Baltimore County, Maryland.
