I Stop! for the Delphinium blues....
|I stop for Delphinium elatum|
|A closer look|
|the white eye enhances the whole effect|
|Dark and light together|
|Two tones of soft blue|
These pictures of the native, wild delphinium of the hills around Crested Butte (on Kebler pass to be exact) is not quite as dazzling as the cultivars...this is one of three tall larkspurs found at higher elevations in our state--all three of which are usually a dark, violet purple color (lovely, but not as dazzling as the true blues).
Whatever shape or form they come in, the delphinium blues are welcome any time!
