How To Grow 325 seeds/gram. It is best to plant this variety directly outdoors in a sunny area, as it does not transplant well. Sow seed in late April or early May 3 mm (1/8") deep – keep the seedbed moist during the 14-day germination period. Thin the seedlings to 20 cm (8") apart. Consolida is of the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae. Originally from western Europe. The common name, Larkspur is sometimes also used as a name for Delphiniums. Consolida flowers differ from Delphinium in that the flowers are open and branched, rather than the column of flowers found in Delphinium. Also Delphinium species are often perennial, all Consolida species are annual.
