Bought this as delphinium 2 yrs ago ..  Still no flowers ? Is this my soil or is this plant something else ?

    not a delphinium. 

    It looks more like a tree paeony tbh. Have you any more photos? some showing the leaves from the top. 

    If it is, leave it alone and it will flower next year or the one after, don't cut it back like a perennial. 

    Nicer than a delphinium image

    that's a tree paeony, how nice. It's a shrub really, not a tree.

    And worth about 10x plus what a delphinium costs so you did very well! image

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Apart from sky blue, all the other blue delphiniums I have are purple. The one labelled dark blue is the same colour as Salvia amistad.
