I have beautiful wild Delphiniums that I have not identified yet. Several NM species have no photographs. If any of you recognize this one, let me know.
Most are gorgeous purple, but a light version showed up too.
The foliage seems different than the photos online, but I will keep looking.
But they are glorious.
I need to mention that Delphiniums are toxic. But hummingbirds love them and so do bees. And me.
I cut back more deadwood this morning and brought a few more rocks for my pathway and bed 8. Still have to finish interlocked beds 8,9,10 before I start my deep shade garden uphill. So I say. Who’s making the rules here? Beds 8,9,10 are eating up that pile of crusher fines. Uphill is shady and pleasant in this miserable heat.
Not to mention I will try to establish Delphiniums in the new beds because beauty. Because hummingbirds! Sounds so much more officially food forest and Delphiniums are critical to happy hummingbirds.
