What Color Is Delphinium?


The color of most delphiniums is blue but can be found in red, pink, white, violet, and yellow.

More Info: Delphiniums are a short-lived perennial, which means that they will experience regrowth each season for an average of three to four years. They are often confused with the close relative the annual larkspur, because Larkspurs often overseed making them appear to be perennials. The larkspur flowers are slightly smaller than that of the delphinium but come in the same variety of colors.
