Nut - you gave us these plants - but what are they?

A couple of years ago Nut gave us these plants when they were quite small - she did tell me what they were - but  I can't find where I wrote it down - I've got a 'species delphinium' in my head but that's all 

Nut, do you remember, or if you're busy this week, (and I suspect you may be image) does anyone else know what they are?

    Hi Dove, busy but nearly there, just an odd bit of weeding and a few cakes to go.

    You're right with the delpinium, it's D. staphisagria. Self seeding annual or biennial

    Thanks Nut .......... I think these self-seeded from before last ... they're looking amazing this year.  Thanks. 

    I hope all goes wonderfully at the weekend  - you've certainly picked your weather ........ we had vague plans of travelling to the in-laws this weekend and popping in on  your Open Garden, but my dodgy knee has sabotaged my plans by dropping me unawares in the middle of a clump of Hesperis matronalis ... the knee's not too bad but I've a badly sprained ankle ........... so pee'd off I can't tell you! image

    And the Hesperis is looking .................. wrecked! imageimage
