Larkspur

Consolida ambigua

Rocket, Bunny-faced Larkspur

About This Plant

Sun. A cool-season annual, blooming in April, with delicate, deeply lobed leaves and pink, white, and blue flowers; watch for the bunny-faced variety. It reseeds freely and grows swiftly in the winter garden providing an explosion of color around Easter. By May it is usually spent. Invasive, but a classic old-fashioned garden plant. Don’t use it if you’re trying to grow native wildflowers, it can quickly overwhelm them.

Origins: Asia

Maintenance

Grows very quickly in the winter garden and self-sows freely, so expect some effort to contain it and clean it up after it goes to seed in May.

An early spring bloomer with lovely blue, pink, or white flower spikes.
