More Details

A pure white and extra tall spire to add to your white border or bridal flowers. It's lovely on its own in a vase and even better poking out through domes of pretty annuals – love-in-the-mist, cornflowers and marigolds – the vertical spike through the otherwise too horizontal.

Consolida are annual delphiniums which flower longer and harder than the perennial forms.

Please note: This is harmful if eaten.
