Larkspur plants are known for their tall, spikey flowers.
Their blooms may be single or double and are evenly spaced around the stem. They usually come in pastel hues, although they can also come in deeper shades of blue. The blooms are found throughout the Northern Hemisphere, as well as on the high mountains in the African tropics. Larkspur was once categorized as a delphinium but has since been recategorized as a consolida, Latin for “an undetermined plant.” Fun fact: despite their pretty and benign appearance, larkspur is toxic to humans and other animals and can be the bane of farmers' existence, as they have been the cause of cattle poisonings on ranges across the western United States and elsewhere.
As intentionally cultivated flowers, larkspurs are classic companions to cottage dwellings, fitting in nicely with the aesthetic of full beds of outdoor blooms.
They also make great cut flowers and can liven up bouquets with their airy presence. According to gardening experts, larkspurs tend to look their best en masse or amongst other annuals and perennials. The flowers are true annuals; they require little attention as they will continue to bloom year after year without intervention.
