Larkspurs are about 5’ ft tall plants with tiny blue flowers.
Larkspur (Delphinium consolida) belongs to the buttercup family – Ranunculaceae. Larkspur flowers are almost as complex as the Orchids. The colorful Larkspur blooms cover a spectrum from white to blue to violet. Larkspur Flowers are irregularly shaped and bloom in a loose, vertical grouping along the upper end of the plant’s main stalk. Larkspur is actually a very complex flower consisting of both petals and sepals. Details from the Flower Expert.
