The Red Lark Delphinium, or larkspur, is a tall plant with a strong visual impact. The 2.5 feet tall stems are thin and feature double blooms in a shade of reddish-coral. The flowers engulf the plant, creating a wall of blooms during the spring and summer. Medium-green basal foliage is lobed, giving the plant a feathery texture.

Delphinium is a staple for mixed beds and borders, lending a cottage garden feel to any space. Plant along a foundation wall or create a lovely mass planting. Trim the stems to feature the flowers in an arrangement. Pollinators also enjoy the beautiful blooms, but deer and rabbits leave Delphinium alone. Grow Red Lark Delphinium as a perennial in USDA zones 5 through 8.

Red Lark Delphinium Care

The Red Lark Delphinium is an easy-to-grow plant that needs full to partial sun. An area that recipes 4 to 6 hours of sunlight will support strong stems and abundant blooms. Water Delphinium when the top few inches of soil are dry. Fertilize with a product with a 5-12-5 NPK ratio in the early spring and again after the flowers fade.

Deadhead Red Lark Delphinium to clean up the look of the plant and redirect energy into the plant to encourage another flush of flowers. The growth will die after the first heavy frost. All of the growth can be removed in the early winter.

Red Lark Delphinium Spacing

Red Lark Delphinium reaches 30 to 36 inches tall and spreads 18 to 24 inches wide. Plants can be spaced 18 to 24 inches apart to create a dense wall of greenery and flowers.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
