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

    Bred for their compact habit, the delphiniums in the Magic Fountains Series still put on a great show with their summer flowers, but unlike many of the taller forms they usually wont need staking. The blooms of this one will mix easily with most shades of pink and purple.

  • 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
