Flowers 101: Delphinium

Pronounced del-FINNY-um, this flower derives its name from the dolphin shaped buds and is more commonly know as larkspur. Originally from China, there are now over 250 different species found throughout the Northern Hemisphere and the mountains of Africa. The flowers have five petals which grow together to form a hollow flower with a spur at the end. Delphinium blooms in shades of blue, purple, white, salmon, and yellow with the primary blooming season from April to October. Delphinium is a poisonous plant, so handle with care and do not consume. They make great dried flowers, grow in full sun or afternoon shade, and can get up to a eight feet tall. When growing them, carefully stake each flower spike to protect it from breaking in the wind. To prevent mildew, avoid wetting leaves when watering. They combine well with poppies and foxgloves and have attractive uses in vases and as flowerbed borders.
