Please validate

not a botanist… but this one I can validate from the knowledge gained from gardening and books..
Its a delphenium.. I used to grow delphiniums..blue and white and an occasional pink in my garden…

and based on comparison with Gibson’s pictures… can be audacious enough to say I validate your flowers… a delphenium malabaricum

BUT WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE LEAVES THOUGH….

Gibson’s garden at Dapuri in Maharashtra had these growing, and he commissioned a painting of it… I have a print… and today I found its on sale at amazon uk at (see the Link below) …. only problem is the blue of the original has apparently faded and a pink hues is all that remains of of the original painting…

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Delphinium-Malabaricum-fine-botanical-print/dp/B004TLW0NQ

you can zoom in and then even enlarge parts of it to examine.. almost as good as a herbarium page and a magnifying glass…

Delphinium malabaricum is the only species of the genus endemic to northern Western GhatsInvasive Species Compendium


Oh Great. I had seen this on Purandar last Oct.

Kas week : Beautiful Blue Flowers : ID Request:   These beautiful blue flowers are from Kaas – Sept.2011.
ID pl.


This looks like Delphinium malabaricum.


A distant shot. But yes it does appear to be Delphinium malabaricum. Good find. Generally a late entrant in the flowering extravaganza.


Yes This is very beautiful genus from Ranunculaceae. Probably the only species found in Western ghats only found on the edges of the cliffs at high altitudes. We have its records on Eflora from Purandar/Sinhagad and one from … or … from some other place.


Could you pls give location from Kas as this plant has not been seen on plateau so far.


Last year for the first time I visited Kaas.
We were on the way to Chalkewadi from Satara,
and got down to see Nicandra physaloides ( Popatee ) – ( obviously not knowing the exact spot )
but there only I noticed and clicked both –
1. Adiantum lunulatum (a common fern ) and then exactly behind it, on the hill, I noticed these beautiful blue flowers of Delphinium malabaricum.

Delphinium malabaricum at Rajgad Fort.


Beautiful photograph the morphology of the plant resembles to Delphinium glaucum


As per GRIN, there is no distribution of Delphinium glaucum in India.
