Delphinium 'Highlander Crystal Delight'
Delphinium - 3 litres
Delphinium 'Highlander Crystal Delight' is one of a series of recently introduced, very different varieties of this much loved perennial, bred in Scotland. Solid spires of frilly double soft lilac flowers with green centres, open in June and July with further flushes through summer. Lovely in the border and as a cut flower, fresh or dried. Attractive to bees. Height and spread 70-90cm by 30cm. 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.
