Larkspur is found in rocky places high in the mountains of Washingtons and Oregon. It flowers in July and August. I saw it growing in Colorado when I lived there.
Delphinium symbolizes cheerfulness and goodwill, as well as a protective plant. Delphiniums are used to communicate encouragement and joy, as well as remembering loved ones who have passed. Delphiniums are also the official birth flower for July.
