This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The delphiniums in the Aurora series have great uniformity, as well as stout stems that are packed with summer flowers - and this makes them perfect for borders or for cutting for the vase. The colouring of this one mixes really well with other pastel shades, as well as stronger pinks and purples.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes in mid-spring. During the growing season apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks and wearing gloves cut back the faded flower-stems to a flowering side-shoot. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower stems.
  • Harmful if eaten
