COLOURS AND SHAPES
Soft blue, bright blue, medium blue and lilac blue. With the Delphinium, there is always a shade of blue for you. You can also choose from white, yellow, purple, red and pink varieties. They look like sticks with bells that ring when you pass by. The stem with flowers can grow 10 to 200 cm long. The flowers have about 3 to 7 petals. With a little imagination, you can see that the buds of the flower look like dolphins. Hence the name Delphinium: the Latin word for dolphin. The flower also has trailing parts, resembling the spurs of knights. Hence the Dutch name ridderspoor.
To make sure nothing happens to you, buy a big bunch of Delphiniums. This is because the often blue flower symbolises truth and protection. Delphiniums were also thought to ward off scorpions... in the past. By gifting such a cheerful flower plume, you can signal that you are all set to move forward together. The flower represents attachment in love. Other words linked to the symbolism of the Delphinium are health, pleasure, lightness, levity and a big heart. In short: a positive flower! It almost makes you wonder why you've never received her from anyone before.
The Delphinium comes from French, American and English growers. So an international lady. Ever since the beginning of our garden culture, we have enjoyed these beautiful flowers. Because the flowers have no function besides 'being beautiful' (not medicinal or edible), they were of no interest to agricultural companies. In a book from the early 17th century, we find the first illustration of a Delphinium. This one is inadvertently listed under the genus monkshood, though.
