Delphinium requienii is a beautiful plant which is not commonly seen these days.

Also known as Requin's larkspur ,this very pretty plant produces spikes of soft, smoky blue flowers, that resemble small orchids.  The flower stems stand proud above the attractive rosette of shiny deep green leaves, the other bonus is that slugs  and snails which normally adore delphiniums tend to leave this plant alone!

 different biennial variety of Delphinium prized as much for its highly attractive foliage as its flowers. Quite thick, glossy dark green leaves develop into sizeable clumps over summer, before flowering usually commences in autumn. The flower stems are massed with small flowers carried right around the stem, which are a gorgeous smoky lilac-blue colour, Stems can be anywhere between 1.3m and 2m tall depending on the richness of the soil. Will self sow lightly if the seed is left to ripen on the plant. 9cm pot.

Will perform to its best in a full sun position. Plant in a well drained position. These plants do like a rich soil and the richness of the soil will determine the height of the flower stems which can be from around 1.3m upwards. Plants will gently self sow if they like their growing position.

This plant is considered a bienniel so will put on leaf growth in its first year and flower the following year.

Height of flowers up to 1.3m plus above clumping foliage.
