Larkspurs are an easily recognized member of the buttercup family found across most of the Northern hemisphere and mountain ranges of Africa. All are highly toxic to people and some livestock, especially the seeds. The Kittitas larkspur is found only in the state of Washington on the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains near mountain streams where the climate is much drier and there is much more sunlight. This one was found growing above Umtanum Creek in Kittitas County, just south of Ellensburg, WA.
