Larkspur Seeds & Plants

Larkspur Seeds and Plants – The glory of late spring and early summer in sunny gardens.

Delphiniums are one of the true glories of the garden, with their tall spikes of beautiful blue flowers. These plants are native to North America and are a wide-ranging species. They're found from British Columbia and Alberta in Canada all the way south to California, Arizona and New Mexico, and also as far east as South Dakota and Nebraska.

Delphiniums and their cousin, larkspur, prefer cool weather and do best in full sun. They both need deep, rich, well-drained soil and should be watered regularly. And they also make excellent cut flowers and are beautiful in bouquets.

The differences between delphiniums and larkspurs are subtle but essential. Delphiniums are generally a perennial species, whereas larkspur is an annual. The foliage of larkspur has a finer texture than delphinium. And the blooms differ, with delphinium flowers being densely born on spikes while individual blossoms tend to be much larger than larkspur.

Delphinium seeds and larkspur seeds can be started indoors six to eight weeks before the last frost date. Then, they can be transplanted outside after all danger of frost has passed. They can also be sewn directly outdoors but will do better if germinated indoors first.
