Delphinium exaltatum

Tall Larkspur is native to eastern North America and may be found in thinly wooded slopes, meadows or prairie habitats with dry, limestone soils. It’s listed as an Endangered Species in Pennsylvania (and several other States) due to habitat loss, roadside herbicide spray and limestone quarrying. Leaves are green, palmate and deeply lobed. This perennial has charming, blue to violet flowers. The tubular flowers attract hummingbirds and native, long tongued bees.
