(Delphinium ‘Magic Fountains’ Mixed)
Delphiniums are the equivalent of a flowering exclamation mark in the garden. This form is shorter and sturdier than older types but still makes a great statement with its tall flower spikes.
Large flowers form on Jong stems from the ground to the tip and appear in late spring and summer.

Plant in a sunny position. Soil needs to be kept moist so mulching and summer watering are necessary.
Stake to support flowers in windy spots. Cut to the ground over winter.
Regular applications of Seasol and Power Feed in spring and autumn will keep it looking its best.
