Description

 

Picture thanks to Australian seed.

This Larkspur has lovely large double blooms of  intense Salmon pink.  The plants are vigorous and grow  to 1.2 m .  They bloom quickly from seed, and can be used as a cut flower and also can be dried.

Because the flowers open from the bottom , they still have buds at the top, and the flowers will bloom for a few weeks opening successively from the bottom.
This plant is very pretty when used in groups of the same colour in the border .

Sowing advice

Sow  late spring and autumn direct or  in trays or pots in good seed raising mix.  Cover with a thin layer of mix and keep moist.  Germination will occur in 3-4 weeks.  If grown in pots/trays transplant when large enough to handle, to well drained soil in a sunny position.
