Buy Delphinium 'Magic Fountains Dark Sky Blue' (Magic Fountains Series) delphinium: Add some oomph to the colour palette

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    As soon as the flowers of this delphinium start to open in early summer, they will provide a strong shot of colour that will really liven up the palette. The upright blue/purplish flower spikes are also valuable for creating vertical interest, which helps add definition and structure to softer, more billowing planting. A strong grower in the border, but it’s also compact enough for larger pots.

  • Garden care: For best results, choose an open spot away from taller plants. Protect young foliage against slug and snail damage. 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.
