Favorite Flowers..... Larkspur




Tonight I thought I would talk about another favorite flower.



Okay, I love the country-cottage look. If you have seen this site at all, you can figure that out. So it is no surprise that I love larkspur (Delphinium consolida).



I must admit, I am a bit new to this flower. I saw it in a friends border last summer and just had to have some. Hers was a shorter purple-blue variety. I have a bit of that (maybe a bunch if it seeded last fall) and I also planted the "Giant Imperial Mix" for this year.



As you can see, it is a tall one. I have it near the back of the border next to the house in full sun.




I think the blue is so pretty, but I have my eye out for pink too.





So if my seed mix has pink, I will sort them out for another bed.



And it can easily be dried. I have not tried it myself, but I may this fall.



Aaaahhhhh, sweet anticipation!

Happy Gardening....Brooke
