Annual. An excellent choice for the back of a flower bed, against a wall or fence, or a wildflower or naturalized garden. Grow in masses for a striking display of light and dark blue blossoms. Self sows readily. Larkspur blooms in the cooler weather of late spring and early summer, and in mild summer climates can continue through fall.
