Widely cultivated for its tall spikes and long, elegant plumes, delphinium can range in height from four inches to over six feet. Blue delphinium is the most well-known, but they grow in other colors as well, such as white and pink. Delphinium represent encouragement and joy, which makes them a perfect ambassador for July birthdays.
What’s In a Name? Sometime’s the reason for a flower’s name can surprise us. For instance, delphinium is derived from the Greek word “delphis,” which means dolphin. This refers to the shape of its closed flower buds, which resemble the nose of a dolphin. However, you may know the flower by its more common name – larkspur.
If you are looking for a beautiful arrangement that exudes all the carefree vibe of the season, Yellow Maria is a wild choice. Blue delphinium is arranged among yellow lilies and gladiolas and curly willow, for a fresh-from-the-meadow bouquet you’ll love to give or receive.
This summer, give a new flower a try! Bring home some blue delphinium and see if it doesn’t add refreshing style and grace to your home decor. You can find them, as well as hundreds of other interesting and beautiful floral choices, at Campbell’s Flowers.
