Eastern Red Columbine
The lovely eastern red columbine is a member of the buttercup family. It loves woodland and rocky slopes and is prized for its red and yellow flowers. It grows up to 36” tall and appears in the late spring nodding on stems above the leaves. Everything from butterflies and buntings to hummingbirds and finches seek out the shade-loving perennial. You can find them at the top of the rocky outcrop on the Wildflower Trail at Rockland Preserve. If you find some on MLCT property, please let us know!
