Publication: Syst. Nat. 1: 355. 1817.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA3: "Although Delphinium menziesii has often been confused with D . nuttallii, it may be distinguished by its consistently larger flowers and usually fewer flowers per plant. Interestingly, each species produces both blue-purple and yellowish flower colors in separate populations.

Delphinium menziesii subsp. menziesii hybridizes with D . trolliifolium and D . nuttallii ."
