SKU: AM014043
per Bag of 3
No longer available this season.
Dwarf Larkspur is a gorgeous native wildflower, with uniquely-shaped, deep-purple blooms. A shorter variety that's perfect for border edges or small-space gardens, Dwarf Larkspur comes into bloom in early to mid spring. Although it draws in a myriad of insects, this plant has a special relationship to both hummingbirds and queen bumblebees, who serve as its only two effective pollinators. (Delphinium tricorne)
