Photograph of a Delphinium (or Larkspur) plant in desert terrain, [s.d.]. Small, lightly-colored blossom shimmer against the dark, spiny sea of stems which blanket the ground on the bottom. The tall Delphinium emerges from the cluster of stems with tiny blossoms growing from its top. The rocky desert terrain can be seen in the background with a faint mountainside in standing in the distance. Photoprint reads "Light blue flower. Grows 2' to 3' high. Pin cushion flower in foreground. Philip C. Jones, 7510 Claybeck Avenue, Burbank".; "Larkspur: any north temperate, Old World annual of the genus Consolida of the buttercup family. Consolida species were formerly classified in the genus Delphinium, which includes similar annual, biennial, and perennial herbaceous plants of the northern temperate zone that are commonly called larkspurs or delphiniums. Plants of both genera are popular garden plants, especially favored for their blue-flowered varieties. In many cultivated larkspurs and delphiniums the spurred flowers, usually blue, pink, or white, rise in a spire above the deeply cut leaves. Most native North American delphinium species are poisonous to cattle. Larkspurs and delphiniums are classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Ranunculales, family Ranunculaceae." -- unknown author.
