|Does anyone know which larkspur this is?|
It's a branching type, and has the two-toned colors. It grows to about 4' tall.

|I am pretty sure it is the Rocket Larkspur - Consolida ajacis! A very pretty wildflower I grow every year for the my bumbles who love it! |

|Thanks, Myriam! |
I had thought it was probably Rocket. It's nice to have a confirmation.

|I'm a bit confused by our DB listings in this area. |
I added this to Delphinium ajacis, but now I'm thinking it should be moved to Larkspur (consolida ambigua). Any thoughts as to which is correct?

|Consolida ajacis is the correct name Chelle.|
Synonyms are Consolida ambigua and Delphinium ambiguum

|Thank you! So, is this entry okay just the way it is, or does it need some adjustments?|
