the name not ring a bell? That’s because it has another name. According to the
Names of Flowers, the Delphinium is a genus name that
refers to a large group of perennials. The delphinium is native to the North
American hemisphere where it flourishes in the late spring and the summer and
produces several different colors. I have even found it in the forests of East
Texas. The Delphinium is normally seen in the traditional blue, but comes in a
dark purple, red, white, and yellow also.
Delphinium has some interesting folklore and myths attached to it. The flower
was said to be sacred to
Apollon, the god of light, healing, and poetry. Apollon
is also the patron god of the city of Delphi, the city of the Oracle, and the
Delphinium was known as Delphinium Apollo as it grew in the city. It is also said
that goddess Persephone was gathering the flowers when she was abducted by the
god of the underworld, Haides.
talk about some fun facts about the Delphinium. For one, did you know that it
birth flower of the month of July? It symbolizes an open heart and has
been said to offer protection against lightning and witches, it also was
traditionally said to prevent eye diseases. Also, the name comes from the
delphis that means dolphin that steams from the
curve of the flowers petals.
do Florists Use Delphinium?
delphinium are a tall flower (what we call a line flower,) they are primarily
used in tall arrangements vs low round
arrangements. They can extend the lines
of bouquets and enhance the visual elements. We use them daily for get well
bouquets, birthday bouquets, and funeral flowers. Because of their common blue
color, they are used often for flowers for men and patriotic flowers.
addition, the delphinium have several delicate blooms along the tall stem.
Those individual blooms can be plucked and used in corsages and bouquets for
weddings and prom flowers.
