Delphiniums are great trumpet blasts at the beginning of June and in gardens that tend to the red and the pink at that moment in the year, this collection gives you classic, reliable, and invaluable blue to purple spires. We’ve had these in the garden at Perch Hill now for 15 years.This collection contains 1 or 3 plants each of:
- Delphinium elatum 'Aurora Light Blue'
- Delphinium elatum 'Aurora Lavender'
- Delphinium elatum 'Aurora Deep Purple'
Protect from slugs, stake stems and feed regularly throughout their growing season with a slow-release feed, such as organic chicken manure pellets. Cut flower spikes and leaves right to the ground in July and they will leaf up again.
