This Larkspur is your classic variety of deep blue and purple tones.
Larkspur has been a main stay of cutting gardens since colonial times. A hardy self-seeding annual, it makes an excellent fresh or dried cut flower.
Larkspur plants prefer cool summers and require vernalization (a period of cool temperatures) for the first 6 weeks of growth in order to trigger flower development.
Vernalization (from Latin vernus, "of the spring") is the induction of a plant's flowering process by exposure to the prolonged cold of winter, or by an artificial equivalent. After vernalization, plants have acquired the ability to flower, but they may require additional seasonal cues or weeks of growth before they will actually flower. This is sometimes used to refer to herbal (non-woody) plants requiring a cold dormancy to produce new shoots and leaves but this usage is discouraged.
