We moved last August to this Calgary house, and I am now discovering all kinds of strange plants (weeds??) in my garden beds. One of them I can confirm is a blue delphinium, as I saw it blooming late last summer, before a wind storm took it out. Not too far away in the bed is what appears to be a delphinium-type leaf emerging, but it appears to have spread from the original plant? Has anyone heard of a creeping delph/larkspur? If so, I would like to nip it in the bud, as it won't likely do well under a mature evergreen, and the wind will kill it anyway (there is no way to support that kind of tall plant). If it's not that, I might want to keep it, but I don't want to fight with it all summer. All suggestions are welcome! Thanks!!

I would think it is plant that grew from SEEDS that has been carried by the wind or birds.This fall you could transplant it or dig it out now if you want.Tying up DELPHINIUMS is hard as they are so delicate and easily broken. CHECK OUT MY WEB SITE FOR SUPPORTS. www. perfectpruning.com
