Consolida ajacis. Larkspur is one of the few flowers mentioned by name in George Washington’s letters. This beautiful annual will fill your late spring garden with tall, brightly colored flower spikes in shades of blue, pink, and white. Larkspur will grow best in full to part sun, reaching a height of 3-5’. If not deadheaded, plants will readily self-sow for your enjoyment the following spring.
A must for adding height to your cottage garden or flower border! Larkspur is a great cut flower and may also be pressed or dried for use in flower arrangements or crafts.
Larkspur does not transplant well; sow seeds directly into the garden in late spring or early fall, 10-12” apart. Cover lightly with 1/8” of soil.
USDA Zones 3-9.
Heirloom seeds are collected, cleaned and packaged by hand at Mount Vernon.
