10 Wildflowers That Do Well in the Suburbs

Like many wildflowers, larkspur (Consolida ajacis) is an annual that might have you believing it’s a perennial. It shoots up in spring, showing off ferny foliage and bright spikes of blue-purple, pink or white. By midsummer this cool-season annual is fading and ready to be cut back or removed. A rampant self-seeder, it comes back year after year, slowly drifting around the garden. Don’t worry; young plants are easy to remove and it’s not a pest.
