Waterperry Gardens herbaceous border's Campanula lactiflora and Delphiniums hybrid are at there very best and have reached record heights. The delphinium is the tallest the border at Waterperry has ever seen measuring in at a 9ft 2¼ inches.
Oxfordshire-based Waterperry horticultural manager Rob Jacobs is sending the figures off to the Guinness Book of World Records to see if it is a record-breaking Delphinium.
He said: "It has to be a world record, I’ve been at Waterperry since 1979 and have no record of a delphinium ever reaching this height on the border."
The garden team and manager Pat Havers are amazed by the height,: "It is creating a lot of interest for visitors to the gardens, and they are astonished by how tall it is."
She says the long cold spring and the late warm weather has caused the delphinium to rocket.
