Delphinium Black Knight Group (Pacific Giants)

Intense purple Pacific Giant Black Knight Group delphinium with well filled flower spikes, flowering first year from seed.
Chunky well filled Black Knight Group
A beautiful well filled Black Knight's first flowering from seed sown in Feb 2019. This one produced 3 flower spikes in late August (initial growth was cut back so that more flowers would be produced, but later). About 3ft tall this year and at that height survived 20mph winds and rain without support. The lack of support was carelessness rather than intention! 

Some mildew after a dry but humid summer.

Have labelled this one "M" and will see if it comes back next year with the same vigour.

I don't think anyone could complain about the first year performance of this Black Knight from seed.
