You can typically find delphiniums in cottage-style gardens. Delphiniums are popular perennials in cutting gardens for their tall stature and because of this, they are known as the ‘Queen of the Border.’ Typically, the blooms showcase gorgeous shades of blue and purple. But, other varieties of delphinium features lighter and brighter colours such as pink, white, red, and yellow.
The name of the flower comes from the Greek word delphis which means ‘dolphin.’ It refers to the shape of the plants’ flower buds. When planted, delphiniums blend well with sneeze weeds, fleabanes, phloxes, daylilies, and max chrysanthemums. Delphiniums are mostly used as dried flowers.
