Aquilegia canadensis | Canadian Eastern Red Columbine | 200_Seeds


Here I am offering Seeds from Aquilegia canadensis, also known as Canadian Columbine, Wild Columbine, and Eastern Red Columbine. This is one of the most beautiful butterfly plants that you can find. It grows to about a foot and a half tall and likes to live in the full sun but can tolerate partial shade. I like this plant for its attractive drooping bell like flowers. Some Native Americans rubbed the crushed seeds from Aquilegia canadensis on the hands of men as a love charm. This is the larval host plant for the Columbine Duskywing and Spring Azure butterflies, and a nectar source for several other butterflies. It is worth mentioning that this is one of the best hummingbird plants in the world. USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 8

Lilium superbum | Turks-Cap | American Tiger | Turban Swamp Lily | 20_Seeds


Here I am offering Seeds from Lilium superbum, also known as Turks Cap Lily,  turban lily, swamp lily, lily royal, American tiger lily and American Turkscap Lily. This beautiful lily is happy to live in the full sun or all the way down to light shade. They bloom from late Summer until early Fall. This plant is native from New Hampshire down to Florida and as far west as Missouri. The colors have a range from bright yellow to orange-red to red at the petal tips. This effect looks like a flame burning. This is one of the most gorgeous flowers anywhere and that is why it was named superbum. It puts on a beautiful display. These American Lilies have a green star in the center of the blossom. This is the distinguishing feature that separates the American Lily from the other Asiatic Tiger lilies. This was also a food source for Native Americans. Not only the people, but the bees, butterflies and hummingbirds nectar on this plant. The bulbs are slightly sweet and starchy. They can be cooked and eaten in place of a potato. or the bulb can be used as a thickener. This plant is endangered in Florida and New Hampshire. I will consider a photo of a butterfly nectaring as evidence that that butterfly uses this plant as a nectar source. Therefore this plant is a nectar source for the Monarch, Black Swallowtail, Spicebush Swallowtail, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, and Pipevine Swallowtail butterflies. USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 9
