Aquilegia eximia-serpentine columbine. Native Calif. to the coastal areas and a little bit inland at some altitude from Ventura County on up the coast. In cooler coastal areas you can plant in full sun to shade. The warmer the more shade. These will flower late in the season but long flowering season from late spring into mid-fall, the “off season”.  Excellent one for both bees and hummingbirds.
