Larkspur 'Splish Splash'
Consolida ajacis

A must grow! This winner of the Fleuroselect Novelty Award is the most unique larkspur we’ve ever seen. Flowers are striped violet, fuchsia and amethyst creating a magical iridescent effect. One of the easiest cut flowers to grow, larkspur is cold tolerant and early to bloom, adding tall, colorful spikes to spring gardens. Great in early season mixed bouquets, these versatile flowers can also be dried for later use.

Approx seeds per packet: 100

How to Grow:
Direct seed in late fall or early spring or start seed indoors in trays 6-8 weeks before last frost and plant out while weather is still cool. Plants do best when sown directly in the garden. Cold tolerant, larkspur can be planted in fall in even the coldest corners of the world. Speed up germination by chilling seed in a refrigerator or freezer for a week before sowing.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
For the longest vase life, harvest when ⅓ of the blossoms are open on a stem. If preservative is used, expect larkspur to last a solid week. To dry, let all but the top three to four blooms open, then pick and hang upside down in a warm, dry place out of bright light for 2 weeks.
