You can get the seed for Diamond Frost Euphorbia from Chiltern Seed in England and they do ship to Canada.
If you save the seeds that develop on your plant, they do breed true. In the Southern States, gardeners complain that their self-seeding is causing them to be known as a weed. I guess one man's weed is another man's bouquet

So many great D's. The Dodocatheon, Dyers Broom, and the Dracocephalum were all strangers to me so I had to do a little research to see just what I was missing out on.
I have to offer Doronicum, also known as leopard's bane, quite welcome in the early spring with cheerful yellow blossoms.

This is Painted Daisy, also known as Pyrenthrum or Tanacetum coccineum

And since I couldn't decide between my many delphinium pictures, I decided a little dill could be used in the soup.

Dan, so glad you read the caption; been looking to buy these seeds forever, but, have never seen seeds on this plant! Probably just never looked that closely at it. Duh!

Thanks a bunch.

Um...more time would be great! Lol!

Here is a dahlia I started from seed last year

Image

Here is the native Delphinium common in southern BC nuttalianum. I have tried to get it to grow but no luck. I think it needs a native fungal partner but not sure.

Image

I would try and find the D tropical plant of choice, but they seem to want me to work! :cry: So here is some very plebian daffs and my blue plate I broke about 20 years ago.
