Dwarf Larkspur

This is the Dwarf Larkspur or Delphinium tricorn. It grows in moist woods and is one of Tennessee's loveliest wildflowers. It is a "spring ephemeral". It blooms briefly then dies back to wait for another April. So many of our spring wildflowers bloom only until the woods go back to shade. Then they are gone. I took this photo this morning in Percy Warner Park here in Nashville.
