F1The Larkspur is the official flower of July. It is a great flower to enjoy this summer in many types of flower arrangements and bouquets for a special gift or even to just decorate your home.

About the Larkspur

The larkspur is part of the buttercup family known as Ranunculaceae. Their flowers are complex in a similar way to orchids with petals and sepals.

The flowers are irregularly shaped and tend to bloom in a vertical grouping along the upper end of the plant’s stalk.F2

Colors include everything from white to blue to violet. There are also other colors, including red and pink among the other species. They go nicely with many other types of summer flowers, including roses, sunflowers, lilies and more.

Some key facts about larkspur include:

  • Larkspur flowers, with tall spikes, make excellent cut flowers, particularly Consolida ambigua and Consolida orientalis varieties.
  • Larkspur flowers tend to be fragile and relatively short lived in the vase (under 7 days).
  • Larkspur flowers grow to their full potential in climates that have cool, moist summers.
  • The Larkspur plant is toxic because its stem and seeds contain alkaloids.
  • Larkspur look identical to perennial Delphiniums.
