Delphinium cardinale

Wildflowers Dicots Ranunculales Ranunculaceae Delphinium

Scarlet larkspur. Seems to like north facing slopes. Seen patches: about half a mile down for Camino Ciello on cold spring trail, on Arroyo Burro Rd (about 1/2 mile from Camino Ciello), on Gibraltar road (back country) down from Camino Ciello.

It was blooming in June and July.

D. cardinale leaves with snow on them (27 Feb 2011)

Between 23 June – 5 July 2011 I saw a white larkspur blooming amid the red ones on Cold Spring trail just below Montecito Peak. It had the same growth pattern as all the surrounding ones so I presume it was just a color variant
