Flower Friday: Larkspur

I learned about Flower Friday last year from Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and have been having a blast sharing some flower pics. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!

Today I chose to share larkspur–another easy flower to grow from seed.


I started growing this flower in our butterfly garden four years ago and it comes back by reseeding itself every year abundantly with little to no care! The version I grow is titled “cloudy skies” and blooms in purple, blue, and white.

Larkspur resemble their relative delphinium, but these are an annual. You can let the plant reseed and also collect seed easily. They thrive in well-drained soil and full sun. Although these are said to not transplant well, I do grow these from seed in a tray and transplant out in the spring. Here’s a tray I started recently.


Scientific name: Delphinium
Higher classification: Ranunculaceae
Rank: Genus

You can find larkspur seed at most garden centers and seed sites online. Butterflies love this one too!

 I hope you enjoyed today’s Flower Friday. To all those celebrating, have a wonderful Easter weekend!

    Beautiful colors! Love the deep purple one the most. Hard to believe you’re tiny seedlings are going to be those big beautiful flowers. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
