Earl Grey Larkspur

Consolida ajacis
For that kind of cloudy day on the Maine coast when subtle “cool” colors come into their own and the grey chill invites you to curl up with a cup of Earl Grey tea.

Additional Information

Larkspur

Annual. Formerly known as Delphinium consolida. Delphinium-like long-stemmed flower spikes are used as cutflowers or in dried arrangements. Upright 3-4' tall plants.

Culture: Likes cool moist conditions. Very slow to give in to fall frosts. May be direct seeded in early spring or started indoors and grown on at 55° and set out in 8 weeks. Does not germinate well in warmer temperatures. Refrigerating for a week improves germination. Cut when one third of the flowers on the stem are open. For cuts, vase life is 6–8 days. Excellent for drying. Self-sows readily. ~330 seeds/g. except for Blue Cloud.

Flowers

All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.

Days in parentheses after a variety indicate days to first bloom.
