Larkspur (Delphinium Consolida) actually belongs to the buttercup family. Colorful Larkspur blooms vary from white to blue to violet. Larkspur flowers are irregularly shaped and bloom in a loose, vertical grouping along the upper end of the plant’s main stalk.
Larkspur plants prefer full sun to partial shade. They grow very quickly and do very well in average soil in cool weather. Water plants during dry periods, once or twice per week.
