Description: Annual (1m) Cottage Garden This stunning larkspur is a classic example of how much our modern flowers have changed . It is an old fashioned heritage larkspur with tall open growth and open flower spikes, instead of the far more compact plants and flower spikes of modern selections. Along with the openness of modern varieties however has gone it’s magic! Check out the subtle colours changes in this apparently grey but on closer inspection grey, blue, purple exquisite flower, and then feel how special this flower is. I don’t get that feeling from the modern selections. Put them with Fire Circle poppies, Cornflower, Sweet peas, Nicotiana Woodland

Planting Instructions: Plant into trays early spring and prick out when first leaves appear to 2.5cm diagonal spacings. Transplant when 5 cm high at 10-15cm diagonal spacings.
