A new “Giant Larkspur” with shimmering bright pink, semi-double to double, inch and a half flowers. Quickly reaching up to 4’ high and 1’ wide, this stately hardy annual produces densely populated 9-12” tall spikes of flowers popular with bees and hummers. Blooms Spring thru Summer in cool-Summer climates. In warmer areas, expect it to wrap up by mid-Summer - providing afternoon shade will help extend its season. One of the best choices for a cut flower, the flowering stems can also be air dried for a permanent vase display. Outdoors, it combines well with such native annuals as “Arroyo Lupine”, “Baby Blue Eyes”, and blue-flowering Phacelias. When planted in drifts, this showy “Larkspur” will create quite a sensation. Best in fertile, well-drained soil. Can be planted in Fall in warm Winter areas, in spring elsewhere.
