Product Details
Larkspur 'Dark Blue' Seeds

Larkspur 'Dark Blue' has spires of deep ble/purple double flowers on long branching stems. From an autumn sowing Larkspur produces sturdy plants and flowers early the following year. They can also be sown in succession in spring to give for the longest flowering period. If you are growing flowers for cutting then I suggest you sow in March and May too.

If you love Delphiniums then you'll love these! Larkspur are annual Delphiniums.

Larkspur seed germinates best with a period of cold stratification. You'll find a simple explanation of how to do this on the Blog. Annual Larkspur are extremely hardy... they are classic country garden plants. Their dramatic flowers are good in your borders, for cut flowers and for drying to make confetti. In fact some people say that Larkspur makes the best confetti!
