    Delphinium geyeri Greene

  • Description

    Species Description - This species is characterized by the strigose-canescent pubescence, the ascending instead of erect pedicels, the large blue flowers, the rather large bractlets, which often are half as long as the sepals and borne close under them. The species would not be placed in this group if it did not have squamellate seeds. These are, however, only finely so, rather large, about 3 mm. long, black, irregularly angled, but not wing-margined. The following specimens are in our herbaria.
