        Hi,

        Welcome to the forum.

        It looks like a nice blue Delphinium, that will return each year.

        Its biggest enemy is slugs which often eat the new shoots as they emerge from the soil in the spring, so you often wonder what happened to them.

        As the flower spike gets bigger its wise to use a cane/stake/wire hoop to support it as they can be toppled by strong winds

          Welcome Flower Power. You are lucky as it looks as though the snails haven't attacked it.
