Larkspurs in Cordoba

CordobaThe tiered gardens of the Alcazaba have wonderful and a very full series of displays including this beautiful underplanting of annual larkspurs in pretty pastel shades under a large pomegranate edged with Buxus sempervirens.  Larkspurs are a native European plant called Consolida and a close relative of the Delphinium. It was a very pretty display that caught the light and looked nauralistic as well. It reminded me that natualistic planting schemes could benefit from this sort of block planting of annuals too if you have the team to look after it all
