Larkspur look identical to perennial delphiniums. They have tall beautiful spikes with petaled flowers. They come in a variety of shades of blue, purples, lilac, white, rose and pink. They are said to grow about three feet high but mine grow much taller than that. Mid May, mine were already four feet tall. Plant them at the back of your garden, use as a border or grow them along a fence.


"These tall spikes make excellent cutflowers. They are long lasting and look very elegant in arrangements."

You will need:
larkspur seeds, garden trowel, fertilizer, stakes and compost.

  1. Larkspurs are best started by from seed in spring or fall. If you sow the seeds in the fall, be sure that you allow enough time for the plants to begin growing before the first frost arrives. In colder areas you will not see any growth until spring. If you wait until spring to sow the seeds, start as early as the ground can worked.

  2. Transplanting Larkspurs is very difficult. It is best to sow seeds where they will remain.

  3. Keep well-watered during dry periods.

  4. Staking these plant may be required so they do not bend under the weight of the blossoms.
