Grow me instead of Foxglove

Larkspurs are fantastic garden perennials. Growing to 2 m tall, these beautiful plants bloom in the summer with showy spikes of pink, purple, blue, or white flowers above ferny foliage. Larkspurs require consistently moist soils and full sun to thrive. These plants are very toxic however so take care to not grow them where children or pets can access them.

When selecting non-invasive plants for your garden, be sure to look for those that are suitable for your location, including moisture requirements, hardiness zone, and avoidance of known bear attractants among other factors.
