Spectacular spires of semi-double, plum-purple flowers, each with a white eye, appear in June and July above deeply lobed, mid-green leaves. These brightly coloured delphiniums look fantastic towards the back of a sunny, well-drained border. Shorter-lived than many other varieties of delphinium, they nonetheless make excellent and long-lasting cut-flowers.
For best results, plant in an open spot with fertile, freely-draining soil.
Protect the young foliage against slug and snail damage.
During the growing season, apply a seaweed or balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks.
