Delphinium 'Moon Light' (Highlander Series)
- Position: full sun
- Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June and July
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Rosette-like, fully double flowers, each with a green eye and sepals that are edged in pale lilac, form in a spiral around the upright spire in early to midsummer. Their delicate colouring will blend well with stronger purples.
- Garden care: Protect young foliage against slug and snail damage in spring. Stake with bamboo canes in mid-spring, before the flowers appear. During the growing season, apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks and wearing gloves cut back the faded flower-stems to a flowering side-shoot to encourage repeat flowering. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower stems.
- Harmful if eaten
