The larkspur represents the strong bond of love, and signifies an open heart, ardent affection, and positivity. As with many flowers, the color of the bloom changes the symbolism. Blue larkspur symbolizes dignity and grace, white larkspur symbolizes a happy nature, and purple larkspur symbolizes first love.
Larkspurs grow wild in the United States as well as Europe, and are known as a protective plant to repel venomous snakes and to cure scorpion stings. They have also long been used to ward off evil, making larkspur a popular flower for cottage gardens during the Victorian era.
Gift the larkspur to celebrate July birthdays and to mark any occasion to express strong bonds, dedication, and sincerity.
