Larkspur 'Sublime Mixed' Seeds

With spires of double flowers on long branching stems in colours ranging from palest pink to the deepest blue, Larkspur Sublime Mixed will give you a great show. Sow in spring for summer flowers then sow again in autumn. From an autumn sowing Larkspur produces sturdy plants and flowers early the following year. The Sublime series is exceptionally vigorous, producing strong healthy plants with lots of blooms.

If you love Delphiniums then you'll love these! Larkspur are annual Delphiniums. In my view Larkspur is one of the most beautiful plants of all for cut flowers.
