In my Zone 5, the Larkspurs are now rapidly growing from seed and will start blooming mid June. The Ligularia are robust leafy plants now, but will also only start blooming towards the 3 or 4th week of June. Obviously, the photograph was from a previous year, but I have kept the color and plant scheme for quite a while.

I guess mine are on the same schedule this year--neither my ligularias nor my larkspur have bloomed yet, but they're planted in completely different parts of the garden, so although they might bloom simultaneously, they won't look like yours, lol.

Question: do you pinch your larkspurs?

I find that the combination of Larkspur and Ligularia not only make a complimentary color scheme, but they are very compatible with light and water requirements. I let the Larkspur produce its seeds, then collect them, pulling out the plant simultaneously.( I do re-seed manually in late Fall.) By then the Endless Summer Hydrangeas take over the show. That view is more noticeable in the 2nd Multi-plant photo I submitted at the same time as this one. It is in essence my front garden and it keeps changing and highlighting different flowers and plants. Thank you for the interest you've taken.
