Delphinium nudicaule 'Red Cap'

20th July 2015

I think I discovered the red University hybrid Delphinium at an impressionable age. I saw the breeding stock just as Professor Legrow transferred them to the RHS at Wisley and the image has never left me.
So this is just a form of Delphinium nudicaule but who cares, it is wonderful. A dwarf selection of the Californian species with compact upright flower spikes.
