Delphinium elatum – Sweethearts

Delphinium elatum – Sweethearts

Huge spiked & strongly perennial, this “New Millenium” variety is far superior to the commonly available “Pacific Giants.” They can easily reach 6’ tall & by its second year as much as 4’ across. Extra large, bright-pink blooms with a white “bee” are held compactly to make large 3’ spikes & unbelievable cut flowers. Long blooming if you cut the spent spikes. You can cut it back to 6” tall (then add some compost) for a second glorious display. Rich well-drained soil.
