Delphiniums grown and treasured for their tall, stately spikes in beautiful blending hues of blue, pink, white and purple.

The plants produce elegant beautiful vertical flowers which can grow up to 6 feet tall and are usually planted at the back of a garden border.

Plant delphiniums in humus-rich, well-drained, organic soils. While it's important to keep the plants consistently moist (they don't handle drought well), be sure that the soil has proper drainage.

Ideally, delphiniums should be planted in full sun for the best blooms and sturdiest stems.

Delphiniums are a favourite of many gardeners, but can be a challenge and will require staking to hold up the plants.

Plant delphiniums and you are sure to attract bees to your garden.
