Description

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.

Care Tips

Plant in full sun with good drainage. Space plants to aid air circulation and help prevent problems with mildew. Plant in groups of 3 or more. Stake plants and give a liquid feed during growth period. Deadhead to prolong flowering.
