Once the delphiniums grow bigger, the blue and purple color mixed lessens to this beautiful baby blue! Delphinium is an elegant perennial, and can grow up to 2 feet tall for the dwarf varieties. It loves cool and moist climate, great as cut flowers, and blooms from late spring to early summer.
As I have mentioned before, delphiniums come in light blue, deep blue, pink, white, purple, yellow and red. I haven't seen the red and yellow ones around yet. Planting should be placed in full sun to light shade, well drained soil, and have protection from strong wind.
Delphiniums need a thin layer of compost each spring, and two layers of mulch to retain moisture. The soil can't be dried out. Divide the plants in clumps every three to four years as new plants begin in early spring.
Have a great Monday..
