Laskspur and delphinium

Does the label say any more than delphinium aym?

I have had a lot of plants and wonder where they are now

Laskspur and delphinium

Posted: 17/10/2016 at 14:34

Larkspur is just a common name, not something to accurately ID a plant. If you want to sort out plants in your mind forget all those common names.

The annuals we know as Larkspur are Consolida, (C. regalis, C. ajacis and others). Before a name change these were called Delphinium consolida, D. regalis etc. so closely related

There are annual delphiniums, Delphinium staphysagria is a good one.

There are many more species in the Delphinium genus than we ever see.

just throw them on the garden. They're not plants for pricking out and potting on and all that stuff.

Poppies generally do best direct sown.

No hardy plant wants  to be sown indoors.

nothing survives if you keep removing the leaves but you need to do it as soon as more leaf appears, not let them grow for a few months then chop them off.

Planting plans and keeping track of your plant names

Posted: 16/10/2016 at 13:50

I've got a list, but there are gaps in it. Some of the plants that are on it died or were dumped years ago.

Most plant names are in my head, but there are gaps there too, more gaps than there used to be. 

No plan, too complicated for me

Mirabilis jalapa

They're not over hardy, I had a couple come through last winter but usually I grow them from seed each year, very quick to flower from seed and reliable germinators
