I have some containers that need something tall and I have left over larkspur seedlings in paper pots. Do you think they'd flower in a container?

I'm running out of sunny garden space. I can always give them to my garden buddies and figure out something else for the containers.

I don't know. Never tried that. But mine get to be 5' tall or more. You'd need a big pot!

Once in a while they come up in a pot around here , they do survive but are less tall by about 30% , may have to do with the long tap root.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

They will flower in a 10" pot, and I know this because I got very busy and never transplanted my paper seedling pots. While the poor things are very sad looking they are budding in 2" diameter 6" deep newspaper cylinders
