Larkspur (Delphinium Consolida ambigua Frosted Skies) 100 seeds (#2000)

Cool, eye-catching bicolour flowers which are easy to grow.
The tall spikes are perfect for the classic 'cottage border' and they make excellent cut flowers, whether fresh or dried.
Cool weather annual. Easily grown from seed in loose, moderately rich, consistently moist, well-drained soils in full sun.
Water the plants regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist. Avoid overwatering, since excess moisture may cause root rot. The plants should bloom in their first season if started early; otherwise, they will begin blooming in the following summer. After the first crop of blossoms fade the plant may be pruned for new growth and a possible second blooming. These plants will self-seed in good growing conditions. Cut the plant several inches above ground level after the first hard frost. Larkspur attracts hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies.
