Planting and care

Larkspurs require cool temperatures to successfully germinate and bloom, so they grow best when sown directly in the garden in early spring before the soil warms. The seeds germinate reliably under the correct conditions and will mature to a height of 1 to 4 feet in just a few months. However, the seedlings are susceptible to rot and must be planted in quickly draining, mildly alkaline soil to survive into maturity.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Pick a spot with full sunlight or partial shade. The soil should be average to rich and also well-draining. Keep soil moist throughout the growing season. 80 degrees and more. Apply any organic fertilizer.

Caring for Larkspur Imperial Mixed

    Larkspur generally grows best in cooler weather. When the temperature rises to 80 degrees and higher, they will most likely die. But in general, it will grow fast with little maintenance until the first frost hits. As with most annual plants, frost will wipe them out. Also strong winds will damage them, so make sure they are well-shielded. If your larkspur grows too tall, it may have to be staked up as the blossoms get too heavy. But if they are planted about six 6 apart, they will support one another and won’t require staking. Larkspur usually blooms very early in the spring, before any other plants. If you need to add fertilizer to your soil, do so about once a month, but not after the larkspur have bloomed.

Harvesting

Seed from Larkspur can be collected and saved for planting next year. Allow the flowers to go to seed, collect the tiny black seeds on a dry day, and store them in a cool, dry location. Saved seed retains it s viability for up to 6 months, after which time it starts to decline. Year old seed can have germination rates as low as 50 percent.
