Menzie's larkspur is the smaller of two native delphiniums grown at the Friends of Buford Park Native Plant Nursery. Flowers are an intense blue-violet with the upper petals, which are sometimes white, forming a pronounced hollow spur. In the garden this species will prefer a more open, well-drained exposure. All parts of the plant are toxic and may be fatal if eaten. Delphiniums also inhibit the growth of nearby plants, especially legumes. Deer and rabbit resistant. Pollinated by hummingbirds, butterflies and bumblebees.
