Violdelphin is an anthocyanin, a type of plant pigments, found in the purplish blue flower of Aconitum chinense,[1] in the blue flowers in the genus Campanula[2] and in the blue flowers of Delphinium hybridum.[3] It is a molecule incorporating two p-hydroxy benzoic acid residues, one rutinoside and two glucosides associated with a delphinidin.
