For sale by Jeremy Chadwick

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Gorgeous - Like a totally slug-proof autumn-flowering delphinium - tall spikes of deep blue flowers in September-October. Beautiful fresh green foliage from March until late autumn - looks great in March when most perennials have barely begun to grow. DO NOT EAT, and avoid rubbing against the skin.
