Delpheniums

Are delpheniums part of the lupus family? I'm wondering if they would be harmful to cattle.

Thanx, Glenda

Read this Wikipedia article carefully:

Note the final sentence on larkspur:
Larkspur, especially tall larkspur, is a significant cause of cattle poisoning on rangelands in the western United States. Larkspur is more common in high-elevation areas, and many ranchers will delay moving cattle onto such ranges until late summer when the toxicity of the plants is reduced.
