Delphinium Summer Skies Group
Delphinium - 2 litres
Delphinium Summer Skies Group (Pacific Hybrids Series) is a classic variety of this much loved perennial, with spires of pale sky-blue flowers with a white eye in May and June and 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 1.2-2m x 60-90cm. 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 canes or sticks. Cut back as flowers fade to promote fresh growth and more flowers later.
