Larkspur is a tall and showy addition to any garden. A favorite of pollinators and a perfect companion for poppies.
Medicinal use of Larkspur:
Larkspur formerly had a reputation for its ability to consolidate and heal wounds, whilst the juice from the leaves is considered to be a remedy for piles and an infusion of the flowers and leaves has been used as a remedy for colicky children. However, the whole plant is very poisonous and it should not be used internally without the guidance of an expert.
Externally, it can be used as a parasiticide. A tincture of the seed is applied externally to kill lice in the hair.
