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

    As soon as the flowers of this delphinium start to open in early summer, they will provide a strong shot of colour that will really liven up the palette. The upright flower spikes are also valuable for creating vertical interest, which helps add definition and structure to softer, more billowing planting. A strong grower in the border, but it’s also compact enough for larger pots.

  • 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
