Rocket Larkspur, also known as wild Delphinium, is famous in the dried flower trade, but we prefer it growing in the garden! Gorgeous spikes of red, blue, pink, white and purple add unique color and texture to the summer garden or meadow and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Rocket Larkspur is extremely easy to grow and can be planted in almost any spot. And yes, be sure to plant extra for cut bouquets – of course! All of the seed we handle at American Meadows is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free and guaranteed to grow. Annual.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
This wild delphinium is the annual so loved by dried flower arrangers. Spikes of red, deep blue and white flowers dry easily; they also add great color to meadows.

About the Floral Flag shown above: This 6-acre tribute to the 9/11 victims was planted by Bodger Seed Company in Lompoc, CA soon after the attacks. It was in full bloom by July 4, 2002. The flag included over 400,000 plants of this flower species, (Rocket larkspur) creating a bloom of over two million flowers.
