Herbaceous perennial ranging from 2 to 3 feet in height, Red Columbine blooms red and yellow colored flowers from April to July. The nectar-rich flowers are very attractive to hummingbirds and are one of the best options if you are interested in attracting them. Red Columbine will also attract insects, which in turn attract insectivorous birds. The seeds of Red Columbine may attract finches.
