Delphinium, by Susan Pandorf of Sunflower Designs, the third in her 2009 Garden Variety Collection series.
Delphiniums are native to Europe and Siberia. Their name relates to the Greek word ~Delphis~ meaning ~Dolphin~ referring to the shape of the back of the flower which resembles a Dolphin's snout.
In other countries it was thought to resemble a Lark's foot and was called ~Larkspur~ ~Lark's Heel~ and ~Lark's Claw.~ It is also said that the Greeks named this flower after Delphinium Apollo, the god of the city of Delphi. Delphinium is a symbol for swiftness and lightness.
