Larkspur: A cutting garden favorite flower, the Delphinium, or larkspur, is a low-maintenance perennial that features vibrant blue-violet or purple flowers. It might look like a show-off, but it's a good-natured, North American native species that will thrive in most USDA growing zones in the contiguous 48 states.
Larkspur Is Easy to Love
TN Nursery recommends larkspur to any gardener who wants a flower that can take a lot of sunshine while requiring minimal care. Once you select a partial sunshine home for your larkspur, you should loosen the soil, add compost or fertilizer, and water it about twice a week during dry periods.
At the season's end, you can trim back your larkspur and cushion the roots from the harsh cold weather with a layer of hardwood mulch.
This perennial is truly almost carefree.
The Classic Elegance of Larkspur Makes It a Garden Favorite
Larkspur is ideal in a rock garden, cutting garden, in the middle of a border, or even in a deep container. Plant this showy flower in any sunny spot that needs a vibrant display of blue to purple color.
Larkspur generally grows to around three feet high. The stems stand tall, seeming to reach high toward the sun, and may have a slight fuzz on them in their early growth phase.
The leaves are silvery green, slender, long, and lobed. They present in thicker, alternating groupings near the base of the plant and become more sparse at the top.
Larkspur flowers are the star attraction in many American gardens. The flowers form a loose, inch- to two-inch wide trumpet shape. Each blossom has five petals that curl under, creating a claw shape or spur, hence the name. Expect to see these luscious blossoms in the hot weeks of mid-summer.
The weight of the flower may require staking to keep it from breaking. But that extra helping hand is worth the colorful show you get to witness in return.
