Wild Columbine

Perhaps you know this hardy perennial as Canada Columbine, Wild Honeysuckle, Rock Lily or by some other name; however, its intricate features and soft shades of green, reddish-orange and yellow make it a delightful addition to any landscape. With petals that extend into long hollow spurs that end with knobs filled with nectar, this plant is a natural hummingbird feeder. In fact, while taking these pictures, I had the good fortune of seeing Ruby-throated hummers feeding but they didn't stick around after hearing my camera clicks!
