Cultivar Notes - 'Summer Blues'
Totally unlike the tall, spiky Delphinium cultivars, this little beauty stands at a height of 10"-12" and forms compact mounds of well-branched foliage. It puts on a spectacular show from early summer to fall, with soft sky blue flowers.
Genus Notes - Delphinium
The name of this genus originated in reference to the dolphin-like shape of the flower bud, for in Greek, delphin means "dolphin." The first Delphiniums recorded as cultivated in gardens were the Larkspurs, and the modern perennial Delphinium was a creation of mid-nineteenth-century European breeders.

Dephinium is one of the few genera in which the flowers display a true, pure blue. This genus is also among a very limited number that have evolved species spanning the color spectrum. Whether blue, scarlet, or yellow, these flowers never fail to rivet attention with their extraordinary, saturated intensity.

Elegant treasures of the perennial garden, Delphiniums have a stately appearance and cup-shaped flowers that add lovely displays of vibrant color.

The towering spikes of the tall hybrid Delphiniums are much admired but highly impractical for many gardeners. The shorter varieties give nearly as much pleasure with a lot less effort. Give them deep, rich, moist soil and plenty of sun.
