Deep Blue Delphiniums

Few flowers can achieve a true deep blue the way some delphiniums do. I'm afraid I don't know the cultivar name for this one.

Beautiful banner Elizabeth!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Gorgeous true blue! Lovey dubby I'd like to try growing them, but am afraid they would need more attention than I want to give. I know they need staking and regular watering. But with color like that, might be worth it. Rolling my eyes.

You've captured such vibrancy of this blue beauty. Outstanding in any garden I'm sure, as it is on this banner.

As @lauriemorningglory mentioned, delphiniums can require staking. This one was a case in point. The bloom spike was essentially horizontal when I saw and photographed it! Smiling

Thanks for all the expressions of appreciation for this banner, though Mother Nature deserves most of the credit for producing such sublime colors.
Thank You! Lovey dubby Smiling
