I knew it was a perennial in one of my beds and that is was coming close to blooming, but could not remember
what is was! All I remember is it starts with a dilp......, it is so pretty and colorful, reminds me of hollyhocks!

Delphinium, I think! I love them, and have some small plants started from seed; probably won't bloom for me until next year, though Smiling

Your Delphinium is very pretty!
I like the ones with white "bees".
It will likely give you more seeds.

What a pleasant surprise, it is in full bloom again! Did not know it would do this twice in a season. And all the seeds that dropped,
will they sprout next spring?

Mine did not, or seemed not to, re-seed. (I also often got two blooms per year.

But slugs instantly mowed down EVERY Delphinium seedling they could reach, so I think we might need to start them indoors (or isolated from slugs) until they can grow new leaves faster than slugs can eat them.

I also saw that once a plant was more than 18-20 inches high, the slugs lost almost all interest. As if they only like Delphinium "micro-greens".

Delphs HAVE TO be the easiest plants to collect and clean seeds from. I just waited until they were ripe, dry and rattling in their little cups. Then I leaned each flower stalk over and just POURED all the seeds into a big cardboard box (a trash bag or opened newspaper would work, too). Maybe I hand-picked one or two pieces of chaff out of the box, but then the seeds were 100% clean.
