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

    White-eyed, dusky pink flowers open from the base of the upright spikes from early summer onwards, adding form as well as colour to borders or large patio pots. A cottage garden classic, delphiniums as also ideal for cutting - and this relatively compact form will rarely need staking.

  • Garden care: For best results, choose an open spot away from taller plants. Protect young foliage against slug and snail damage. 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 to encourage repeat flowering. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower stems.
  • Harmful if eaten
