Delphinium is the actual name of larkspur.  Delphinium is easy to work with, but it is poisonous.

larkspur is larkspur – it might be part of the delphinium family but I’ve always known it as Larkspur – and is someone going to be eating it – poisonious? Maybe foxglove is posionius if you eat it but who’s going to be eating your arrangements?!?! lol 🙂

Larkspur comes in beautiful soft colors and it’s very romantic. Generally it is very tall and has tall long blooms at the top of the stem structure so I would not recommend using it alone unless you are going to use it in mass for a grassy, casual, shabby chic look.

Some flowers I enjoy with Larkspur are bells of ireland, scabiosa, stock, and lisianthus. Filler is key to add something around the stem structure. It also looks great with foxglove, belladonna, canterbury bells, and lilac.
