Delphinium 'Magic Fountain Sky Blue' | 2L Pot
Adorn your summertime garden with majestic spikes of bright blue flowers...
This premium Delphinium features tall racemens of graceful, bright blue blooms, which are offset by their pastel green foliage. Accentuating your garden year after year, this Delphinium will establish beautiful structure within your garden's borders, and will look stunning when planted along in drifts edging a pathway.
For a flourishing Delphinium, space each plant one to three feet apart as they can grow quite vigorously (and may therefore struggle in crowded spaces). It is also wise to add plenty of compost when planting to keep their soil fertile. Please note, this plant can cause severe discomfort if ingested, and the sap can also irritate the skin.

Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.
PackagingSustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our perennials and alpines are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.
Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:
Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.
Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.
Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
