Description

This new, rare and desirable alpine plant with bluish-green flowers is the only tall larkspur in the Sacramento-White mountain range, its distribution being through New Mexico, Sacramento and the White mountains. Its normal habitats are canyon bottoms, forest meadows and road banks in lower and upper montane coniferous forest from 2,200-3,400m (7,200-11,200 ft).

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
