Larkspur Seedhead (open)

Consolida ajacis

Description:

It is frequently grown in gardens as an ornamental for its spikes of blue, pink or white flowers. It may reach a meter in height. Since the aerial parts and seeds of C. ajacis have been found to contain diterpenoid alkaloids, including the highly toxic methyllycaconitine, the plants should be considered as poisonous.

Habitat:

Wildlife habitat garden with many native plants. The larkspur is grown and allowed to reseed for its early spring nectar.
