Forking larkspur (CONSOLIDA REGALIS)

Thanks to its blue flowers, the forking larkspur is believed to be one of the most visually appealing weeds seen in our country. It is an annual, summer plant that is able to survive the winter well. Emergence occurs usually in the spring months – towards the end of May and the beginning of June. Its emergence does not significantly influence the crop. However, it can reduce the quality of animal feed if the harvest is collected for this purpose, and can also contaminate seeds. It is seen in summer cereal fields, rarely in winter cereal fields. In separated instances it can also be seen among root vegetables.

The forking larkspur can have a stalk that is 15-70 cm high. It develops well in light and humid acidic soils. It flowers between June and September. It has a developed root system, with the root able to grow down to half a metre into the ground – making the plant resistant to drought. Spray treatment proves very effective in terms of control.
