Next up comes my larkspur. I think this is the "Rocket" variety, but I'm not positive about the name. I'm a big fan of larkspurs - they are very easy and put on a spectacular show. The hummingbirds down here like them and visit frequently. They get about 5' tall, so don't put them at the front of the flower bed. You can also see some sweetpea blooms, toadflax, and poppies in this picture.
Here's littly Ali watering away on my larkspurs, California poppies, and dianthus. I think orange and purple flowers look nice together. This is my first year of planting California poppies, but it will certainly not be the last. They are definite winners for cool season planting in the South. I just have oranges and yellows, but might try some different types next year. Mine are about 18" tall and very showy.
