It’s Never Too Late for Larkspur

Larkspur is July’s Birth Flower  

If you didn’t sow Larkspur seed in October for flowering in late spring, no worries.  You can buy the plants at your local gardening center.  Larkspur (Delphinium consolida,) which symbolizes an open heart, tends to be a bit fussy.   But if you have success, Larkspur is a beautiful addition to any garden.   And for those born in July, this is your birth flower! Each color has a different meaning: the color white symbolizes joy;  the purple symbolizes sweetness: and the pink flowers represents fickleness.  July babies — there’s no better personal touch to your garden space than Larkspur!  

I would be remiss if I didn’t  include in this post that all parts of Larkspur are poisonous.  Please be very careful about where you decide to include Larkspur in your landscape.
