Larkspur 'Bunny Bloom' Organic

Consolida ajacis
We have named a selection of old-fashioned larkspur for the remarkable likeness of a bunny's head and ears, found nestled in the center of each floret. The pink or blue flowers are a sure delight to young and old alike, but please be aware of larkspurs' poisonous qualities. Larkspurs are favorite cut flowers, prized for their gracefully scattered florets arrayed on the abundant spikes and their handsome ferny foliage. Site in cutting gardens and near the front of cottage garden borders in fertile sandy loam soil. Self-sows.
Caution: Poisonous. The purchaser assumes all liability related to the use of this product.

Larkspurs are popular cut flowers, as they are equally beautiful fresh or dried. These flowers are prized for their varied hues, from jewel tones to misty pastels, as well as their tall and upright growth and graceful foliage. They are welcome in early summer gardens, where they bestow a much-needed vertical element. When planting larkspurs, allow enough space between plants to ensure good air circulation. Additionally, mulch around the plants to keep the soil cool, leaving a space around the stems uncovered. They perform best where summer nights cool down. Caution: all parts contain toxic alkaloids.
