Product Description

Lark Spur is a Tall, Showy Annual

Lark Spur – Consolida ajacis. A tall, showy annual with pure blue flowers and light stalks. Its name derives from its calyx, which looks like a pointed spur from a side view. The plant looks very similar to the perennial Delphinium. However, that species is a perennial. Larkspurs have more delicate leaves; the flowers are more diminutive. It self-seeds readily and grows to a height of 1-3 feet in the partial or full sun. Although blue is a favorite hue, this plant also has pink, red, purple, and white cultivars. The leaves and stems are blue-green, and it blooms in spring and summer. Lark Spur takes care of itself and the seeds so quickly. The plants thrive best in well-drained soil that gets consistent water but doesn’t remain wet. Blooms won’t be profuse if there is too much shade, and in dry conditions, the plant may grow very little. Most plants will be robust if grown in full sun and not require staking, though others may become spindly if the light is in short supply. Seedlings should be set about 10-12 inches apart to allow for ample room for the roots.

 Lark Spur is a Self Caring Grower

Lark Spur plants may also, more rarely, be found growing in mountainous regions of Africa. Larkspurs are distinct because they are incredibly toxic, both to man and animal (don’t eat them!). It can usually be identified by their five spreadings and peculiarly shaped and highly colorful, petals which look very similar to a fish or dolphin (hence the terminology). Larkspurs tend towards purple or bluish-purple in color and hue and grow in thick, tall tufts though they cannot be eaten raw by humans.
