Larkspur flowers

Larkspur flowersThe Stock-flowered Larkspur is of the same habit as the Dutch Rocket, but has longer spikes and larger and more double flowers. The Hyacinth-flowered Larkspur is an improved strain of the Rocket.

Among other of the hardy annual varieties may be mentioned the Candelabrum-formed, the Emperor, and the Ranunculi-flowered Larkspur. They are charming flowers for beds or mixed borders, and only require the same treatment as ordinary annuals, when they will flower in June.

The Larkspurs height differs from about one to 2.5 feet.
