Delphinium ‘Crystal Delight’


Highlander Delphinium

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.174.070


The Highlander™ selections of double Delphinium was recently developed in Scotland. These form stately spires of flowers in midsummer, over a mound of deeply-cut green leaves. This tall variety has frilly blooms of very pale lilac with an unusual lime green centre. Excellent for cutting. Trim back spent stems to the base to encourage repeat bloom later in the autumn. Be on the watch for aphids, slugs and powdery mildew, all common problems with Delphiniums. Staking the individual flower stems in June as they begin to elongate is wise, to help avoid wind damage. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
