Delphinium General Information

The New Millennium Delphiniums are considered to be long lived, also heat and humidity tolerant while retaining their cold hardiness. Sturdy, strong-stemmed spikes are packed with richly-colored flowers. Delphinium are elegant and exquisite with colorful flower spikes that add a majestic touch to your garden. A choice flower for the hardy border.

Delphinium Plant Care

As with most delphiniums, a moist, rich soil is needed and regular feeding and watering are recommended. This taller variety may require staking. Lanky or bent stems can be cut back by one half to force new growth at the base. As with Digitalis and Lupines, cut off most faded flowers so they do not exhaust themselves in seed production. Allow some self seeding to ensure future generations.
