Delphinium, also known as larkspur, are stately spikes of eye-catching, bell-shaped blossoms in astounding shades of blue, lavender, and occasionally white. They are one of the few flowers that are naturally blue (in addition to iris and hydrangea), which makes them especially unique and eye-catching.

ORIGINS: Their name is derived from the Greek word “delphis,” meaning dolphin (for the resemblance to the bottle-like nose of a dolphin). They were used by Native Americans and European settlers to make blue dye. Also in Europe delphinium was their primary source of ink.
