Delphinium – British Flowers Week

Kate Avery Delphinium-13 The Floral Alchemist FEATURE

Striking , elegant spires of deep purple Delphinium have got to be one of my favourite flowers to have massed in a vase – they really need nothing else to finish them off. With no fragrance to speak of, they rely on stunning depth or lightness of colour from ivory and palest sky blue through some pinks and even a pale peach to royal purple and are one of the few flowers that comes in a true bright blue. They are wonderful for large scale church or reception arrangements but are really at home left in the garden to grow tall and graceful – just watch out for slugs!
