Description

The Scarlet Delphinium is native to California coastal mountains from Monterey County south. It grows from deep woody roots and sends up stems to six feet on hot slopes near chaparral. Unlike most foothill species, this does not flower until late spring or early summer, and will take a rest later, but to thrive, it needs heat during the growing period. The tall stalk bears dozens of bright red, long-spurred flowers. Spectacular at the back of a border and a good hummingbird plant.
