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

    This tall impressive delphinium certainly makes a statement - 'look at me I am beautiful'!! It grows to a height of 1.8m (6ft) and displays spectacular ultramarine florets with deep dark eyes. It is certainly a very showy plant and compliments perfectly the paler blues or whites which may grow nearby.

  • 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 sideshoot. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower-stems
  • Harmful if eaten
