Hi,
I noticed that all of the photos posted under the following general category actually belong under a general category for the genus Delphinium, not for the genus Consolida:

Delphinium (Delphinium)

The correct title to apply to this group of photos would be "Delphinium (Delphinium") (as opposed to "Delphinium (Consolida)").

The species that fall in genus Consolida are different and distinct from those in Delphinium, but the photos posted here all appear to be Delphinium species and cultivars - looks like folks have gotten confused between a common name and a genus name, in this case.

Could it be corrected, please?
Thanks,
growitall

Thanks for the report Lori.
I've changed the botanical name of the entry you noted. Delphinium (Delphinium) and added an entry for genus Larkspur (Consolida).

We have quite a few Delphinium and Consolida cultivars in the database so these are good candidates for Parent Plants. Some data revisions to Delphinium are likely necessary. I removed the Perennial data point as the Flora of China and Pakistan note it as
Herbs perennial, rarely biennial or annual
Additional references would be helpful if anyone knows of any.

All the Flora agree that Consolida is an annual.
