Bright clusters of red and white blossoms. Hybridized for their compact habit and large, 3", long spurred flowers, members of the Songbird Series are among the most showy of all Columbines. Adding to their appeal, the flowers face skyward, not nodding like many other varieties. Excellent as cut flowers, lasting up to two weeks in a vase. Attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. Grow Aquilegia 'Cardinal' in borders, cottage gardens, or as a cut flower.
