I know we all like our bright and deep blue delphiniums, but there's something even more stunning about this smokey trio. Mix with coffee, apricot and terracotta in a border or vase.The seed packet contains a mix of all three varieties:
- Delphinium Magic Fountains 'Lavender White Bee'
- Delphinium Magic Fountains 'Pure White'
- Delphinium Magic Fountains 'Lilac Pink'
Delphiniums love well-drained soil - if they sit wet in their dormant winter season, they can die. They are also hungry and require regular feeding. Protect from slugs!!!
