Larkspur, 'Salmon Beauty'
(Delpinium consolida) Salmon Beauty is not demure in its presence. It is brilliant and soft at once, holding the unique papery, perfectly folded flower quality that larkspurs are so well loved for. Dense, single and double blooms are a slightly dusty rosy pink with hints of salmony-orange undertones, especially in dusky light. A pleasure in gardens, bouquets, and dried. Expect 9-12” flower spikes on 4’ robust plants. Annual with a slight chance of overwintering in a greenhouse or in more mild temps.
