Aquilegia chrysantha (Golden Columbine)

Aquilegia chrysantha
Golden Columbine 'Yellow Queen', Columbine 'Yellow Queen'

This herbaceous perennial produces golden yellow flowers from late spring to fall. Hummingbirds are attracted to the nectar-rich flowers. The fern-like foliage is a rich green color. This plant is biennial, which means it blooms the second year of its life cycle. Golden columbine is native along streams and canyons of the Southwest, growing in moist, rich soil. Golden columbine grows well in full sun at upper elevations, but requires ample water and shady exposures in low deserts.
