- Strikingly tall and gorgeous. This larkspur thrives in moist shady areas. Usually found in masses along seasonally wet forests.
Moisture: wet to moist
Sun: Full sun to part shade
Bloom time: April-May
Direct sowing: Fall sowing is recommended as this species usually has a fair amount of seed dormancy. Seeds usually need 90 days of cold moist chilling before seeds will germinate in spring.
Growing transplants: Sow seeds in containers and place outside or in a cold frame. Seeds germinate at a higher percent when exposed to natural stratification rather than at a constant temp in a refridgerator.
