After several unsuccessful attempts from traded seed, I finally have seedlings. This appears to be a lower-growing perennial larkspur, with less of a spikey nature to the flowering stems.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from '10 trade. Baggy 70F (54%G, 5-9d)
  2. Same seed as above, cold-stored through summer. Baggy 70F (no G, 15d)
  3. Same seed as above, cold-stored through summer. Baggy 70F (45%G, 6-8d)

I can't explain the '12 vs '13 results. Seedling growth is weak. Success rate in pots is higher when transplanting is delayed until leaves develop in baggy.
