This cheerful, widely distributed and variable larkspur is low growing, generally 1′-2′ tall, with deeply lobed leaves and a spurred, dark purple to light blue flower. Loved by many pollinators, meadow larkspur can be found in low-elevation open meadows, dry grasslands, chaparral, open woodlands, edges of forests, near streams, or in sunny, high-elevation meadows. Flowers spring to early summer, depending on elevation.
