A staple perennial for the cottage garden (although we believe every garden deserves one), Delphinium plants are a sight to behold with their tall stalks which are laden with double or single flowers. From true blue to dusky pink, Delphinium plants can be purchased in a myriad of appealing colours - one of our favourites is 'Faust', which sports vivid blue flowers with dark eyes, and can even exceed six feet in height too!
To maintain your delphinium plants and keep them growing back year after year, it's recommended that you stake each one. Delphiniums can be quite top-heavy and have brittle stems, so need to be supported and protected from strong winds.
Where do delphinium plants grow best?
Choose a sunny spot to grow your delphiniums, ensuring they are planted in moist soil which won't get too waterlogged.
Do delphiniums multiply?
Delphinium plants can grow tall and spread quickly, often doubling in size after one year. To save money, you can divide your delphiniums into separate plants for a beautifully blooming garden.
Are delphinium plants toxic?
While they are beautiful to look at, delphiniums contain chemicals and can be toxic to animals and humans. Always keep pets such as dogs away from your delphinium plants. It's also recommended that you wear protective gloves when planting and caring for your delphiniums.
