In Bloom: Larkspur

The larkspur is the star of the garden right now.  I love everything about larkspur, its ferny foliage, the pastel colors, the ease with which it re-seeds itself.  When it is done blooming and the seed heads dry, I just sprinkle them throughout the garden and so far I have had luck with reblooming every year.  I used to try and grow delphiniums,  which I love for their deep blue colors and vertical interest, but they just don't do well with our hot and humid summers. Larkspur lets me have that look and those colors and it seems to like it here.  My garden never looks better than when the larkspur is blooming.
