Larkspur are in the genus Delphinium and include 250 species of flowering plants in the Buttercup Family. They are native throughout the northern Hemisphere and also on the high mountains in Africa. The leaves are deeply lobed with 3-7 pointed lobes. The flowers have 5 petals which are joined together to form a hollow flower with a spur at one end. They are usually pink, blue, purple, red, yellow, or white.

Very nice album. I will add some pictures to this album soon. Actually, the colored "petals" you see are actually sepals, forming the hollow spur. The true petals are inside. Thanks for posting this album.
