Delphinium "loch Ness"

26th June, 2011

Delphinium "loch Ness"
My forth choice is no real monster, in fact its rather a weak grower to about 5ft but I find the mid blue exquisitely clean and the purple shading around the central white bee another added attraction. Actually it is not really a weak grower, it is just somewhat shorter than say Faust or the others, this is of course more than adequately compensated for by its intense brightness, especially noticeable in the late summers evening light.
