Seeds of these charming annuals were included in a wildflower mix that we broadcast on the hill that would later become part of our back yard island. They did well that first year, and have been back ever since. For some reason, some years they are abundant, others we're lucky to have just a few.

|Vera Moore ....zone 5b-6a||Apr 03, 2009||I love larkspur too and is a favorite re-seeder; almost re-seeds to heavily, but well worth the thinning out in my opinion. They will often grow to 5' tall and are all the offspring of 'Earl Grey'. Most seedlings do come true but always get some pretty royal blue ones each year in the mix. I had a royal blue Delphinium the fist year I grew the 'Earl Grey' and I wonder if it crossed. It's kinda cool because the Delphinium never came back!
In my opinion I believe the seedlings that self-sow in fall and winter over are far more superior to those started in spring and then transplanted. |
