Delphiniums are popular summer perennials in colder climates but here in Texas the Larkspur is grown as an annual from seed for spring flowering. In addition to allowing some seed to fall naturally, Kathy collects and sows seeds by hand to ensure this wonderful explosion of blooms.
You might think I'm cheating just a bit because this series is supposed to be about plants in my yard. I'm getting to that part. Kathy generously shared her Larkspur seeds with me and I planted them last fall. Here's how they look now....ta daaa!
Hmmm, well it will be a while until mine look like hers. So you prefer seeing Kathy's flowers? Thought so.
I've learned a lot about gardening in San Antonio from Kathy, most notably that you can grow lots of flowers here. I plan to post more about Kathy's amazing garden transformation along the way too.
