Larkspur Plant The Larkspur plant is also known as Delphinium, the official name for this genus in the Ranunculaceae family. The Larkspur is native to the Northern Hemisphere and the tropical mountainous regions of Africa, and it gets its unusual nickname from how its petals mature. Most species of Larkspurs have petals that grow together to form a hollow pocket that develops between 2 and 5 “spurs” near the tip of this pocket. The scientific designation of Delphinium also refers to this unusual shape, with the name chosen to describe this spur instead of a dolphin’s graceful arch. Larkspur is a prairie perennial native plant. Larkspurs come in a wide variety of species. Some varieties that originally are found in forests are tall, hearty plants. These species produce bountiful flowers with long stems up to 2 meters tall. Other varieties from prairie habitats are much shorter, with short stems as small as 10 centimeters for some varieties that only develop very few flowers. Another notable characteristic of the Larkspur plant is its leaves. The Larkspur sports between three and seven deeply lobed, palmate leaves, with the size and number of lobes varying for each species. The color of this gorgeous plant most often presents as a blue hue, but its coloration can vary from rich purples and bright blues to even yellows, reds, and whites. Most varieties of this unique plant share a similarly designed seed. However, that is typically small, black, and usually shiny. Larkspur is a spring blooming perennial Most varieties of Larkspurs flower anywhere from late spring to late summer, making them the perfect plants to provide beautiful blooms during the warmest months of the year for most gardeners. Pollination for Larkspurs is completed with local bumble bees and butterflies, familiar visitors to green spaces with bountiful blooms like those found on this flowering plant.

The hardy plant grows from New England to Florida and the mild climates in the western United States. It asks for shady to semi-shade to shade and moist, de-compacted soil.

This sweet little flower is almost carefree; it will grow in nearly any shady location with minimal care from a gardener.

Bracken Fern Pteridiumaquilinum Bracken Fern: Pteridiumaquilinum, most commonly called bracken fern, is a plant that grows on every continent (except Antarctica) and in almost every USDA growing zone in the United States. Although it can grow almost anywhere, the bracken fern is native to the eastern United States. The Gentle Appearance of Pteridiumaquilinum, Bracken Fern The bracken fern is easily identifiable by its large triangular fronds. It can reach waist-high and grows long, plume-like stems. The fronds are triangular and display leaflets that grow in pairs. Depending on the climate in your zone or area, the fronds generally emerge from March until early May; once the fronds open for the season, they stay green for a long growing season. While they typically grow to a maximum height of four feet, the tallest bracken fern reached approximately seven feet. The leaf color varies from a softer, lighter shade of green to a dark green hue, depending on the soil. The stems are slightly darker than the leafy matter, creating a lovely tonal impact. Bracken Fern Is a Remarkably Robust Plant The common bracken fern grows on any soil, even sandy or rocky, and can survive for years. It is a perennial that reemerges each year with astonishing consistency--even after forest fires, floods, or other disasters. As the fern grows, it forms a dense, deep root network, which helps it reproduce throughout the remainder of the season. The deep roots make it resistant to high winds or heavy downpours. Also, the deeply rooted bracken fern helps to eliminate soil compaction, as the roots dig deep below the surface, not just in short side-to-side clumps like some other fern species. How to Use Bracken Fern in Your Landscape Bracken fern is a highly prized plant for the most rugged terrain. ● You can replace the grass on a sloped or steep hill--it will eventually fill in and eliminate the need for mowing. ● Put bracken fern in areas where you'd like to prevent wind erosion of your soil. It spreads faster than some ferns and provides plant coverage within a season. ● Put bracken ferns in your shade garden or water garden. ● Grow bracken ferns in densely wooded areas to add some greenery.
