Delphinium

Despite the past week of storms, rain and battering inclement weather this scandent Delphinium sp. has proved resilient. It has sparse growth but from this is thrown a steady profusion of delicate sky blue flowers with an interesting kick back spur that extends from the elongated upper sepal. Collected from the island of Corfu where it was found growing in grassland. Worth a look when passing through the alpine area if only to remind ourselves that blue sky will return.
