(Consolida orientalis) Grown by Jefferson at Monticello and a favorite US heirloom, these tall flowering larkspurs bloom in the early summer. The blooms are pretty in the vase and hold their color perfectly when dried. Leave seeds in the strong stalks to dry for finches and other seed eating birds. This is our great-great Aunt Averialís variety, an especially vivid blue-purple that has been passed down in our family since the early 1900s. Most/full sun - Reseeding Annual - 3-4 feet - 100+ seeds/pack.
