  • Product Description

    Larkspur Plant- Consolida ajacis

    Other common names for the Larkspur plant are the Rocket Larkspur or the Giant Larkspur. It is a hardy annual that blooms with pale and sapphire blue double flowers. It does well in full sun and partial shade. Larkspur's quick growing green stems average about three feet tall, though some varieties can grow up to 15 feet. The larkspur was introduced to North America from Eurasia as an ornamental and has since spread all over the continent. It grows wild along many railroads, open fields, and cleared forests. 

    Larkspur does not need much maintenance to stay healthy throughout its growing season, which is generally all summer. These are great flowers for borders and do well in flower beds, especially when planted alongside daisies or snapdragons. Alternately, some gardeners harvest larkspur to showcase in floral arrangements to brighten up their homes while others prefer to dry the flowers.

    When planting larkspur, one should be sure to sow the seeds at least 12 inches apart. Seeds should not be sown until the threat of frost has passed and the nights are staying about 55 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure proper germination. Seeds will not germinate if they are kept too warm, or over 65 degrees. Giant larkspur does well in Growing Zones 2 through 11, though they are at their best at zones 7 through 9. Larkspur, though classified as an annual, has been known to go to seed and restart the next season in the garden. 

    It should be noted that giant larkspur is toxic to some animals, such as cattle and horses, and for that reason it makes an excellent deer deterrent. It should not be planted near pastures or corrals and care should be taken that it is not allowed to seed these areas.
