Larkspur or Delphinium? Which do you like?

I'm still enjoying the Flower of the Month - Larkspur.  Thought I'd share a few more photos with you.

There are so many varieties available.  I think of the original, more delicate, Larkspur with the fern-like leaves to be more of a wild flower.  The cultivated variety, known as Delphinium, has a full leaf and more flowers.  It looks great in a cottage style garden and does well as a perennial in some areas.  Mine have only come back for one year and then I have to purchase new plants. 

I like them both and love the cottage look.  Guess it's time to start a new sketch!
