In a vase on Monday: Nick’s delphiniums

  1. Oops, let’s start again! I’ve been thinking about treating myself to some Delphiniums for the cut flower bed, they wouldn’t grow anywhere else. Your vase is lovely, but I think you are right you have enough of these demanding beauties.

  2. I love delphiniums too but I wish mine grew better….and how awful you lost so many in the shipment…happens here too when the post office leaves them sitting….but good company to rush more to you! Fabulous vases!

    1. They really are such a thoughtful company. And now that they are flowering I appreciate all the drama that went into their arrival!

  3. Yes, the delphiniums are lovely – I think my Camelot is the only one from my Hayloft collection that made it and I suspect slugs are a little too fond of the young plants. Your hemerocallis has such long stems (or is it an illusion?) and looks perfect with the delphiniums, and I am intrigued by the thalictrum – do these flowers change colour or do they stay green? They look most attractive. Thanks for sharing ps I have just been looking at your map – I love to see a map of a garden so thanks for posting that

    1. That’s funny Cathy – we should do a swop! Camelot didn’t survive at all here – and I think there was another (Black Knight???) that didn’t survive either. I was disappointed. The hemerocallis does have very long stems – the flowers are daintier than cultivars of day lily as you’d expect from a species. The flowers of the thalictrum are a soft yellow colour (and, typically) lovely and fluffy. Glad you found the map useful!

  4. Thanks, Cath. The delphiniums are so beautiful and the colour spectacular. Thanks also to Nick as well for persisting. Mum

  5. Delphiniums occupy a prominent place in my dream garden, a garden which is sadly impossible in my hot, dry climate. I love the deep color of yours and they’re nicely accented with that pretty yellow Hemerocallis. Nicely done!

    1. Oh but Kris – I would love to be able to grow so many of the gorgeous plants you have in your garden, but can’t either! One of the nice things about blogging – we can enjoy them virtually!

  6. a beautiful and well balanced arrangement, Cathy, yellow and blue is always great – can’t grow delphinium here as they would hate the heat and drought in summer

    1. I thought they would hate our dry, hot summers. They do fine down below the terraces – I could never have succeeded up here.

  7. Oh, the beautiful color of your delphiniums has me swooning. Lovely arrangement—adding the buds of Thalictrum speciocissimum was inspired.

  8. Love those Delphiniums! Such romantic plants. I can’t grow them as the snails like them too, so they look like pure luxury to me in a vase! 🙂

  9. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, but I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the
    web can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
