Excerpt from 1931 Wings Delphinium Garden
To attempt to describe the colors of our Delphin iums is a hopeless task. The colors run the entire gamut of blues from sky and mauve to deepest indigo and purple. The center is often called a bee and many of them resemble a real bee. They give dis tinction to these lovely ﬂowers and it is a most interesting thing to take careful note of the various types. All of them look as if they were made of a fine quality of fur. Some are white and ﬂat, some are crawling, some are honey yellow. Others are dark brown, bronze or mouse colored, and sometimes you will find brown or light ones feathered with bronze, gold or light green. It is a pleasure to take a magnifying glass into the garden and study these interesting centers.
A fragrant ﬂower has a grace all its own and is particularly dear to the heart of all ﬂower lovers.
