Blue is not so common as many other colors, and of all the blue flowers grown, none is handsomer than larkspur, an old-time favorite. It blooms from the end of June until nipped by frost; if the plant is cut oil close to the ground as soon as each stalk has faded, a new lot of flowers comes along very quickly.
