Delphinium elatum 'Dasante Blue'
Delphinium - 3 litres
Delphinium 'Dasante Blue' is a compact variety of this much loved perennial, with spires of large rich deep blue flowers with purple highlights on strong, sturdy stems in June and July sometimes again in autumn if cut back. Lovely in the border and as a cut flower, fresh or dried. Attractive to bees. Height and spread 70-85cm by 45-60cm. Plant in well-drained, humus-rich soil, in a sunny border, sheltered from strong winds.
Cultural tips: Scatter slug pellets around plants in spring. Support flower stems with twiggy sticks. Cut back as flowers fade to promote fresh growth and more flowers later.
