Delphinium ‘Sweet Sensation’

Highlander Delphinium

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.174.050

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 compact variety has frilly blooms of bright mauve-purple, kissed with blue-green. Excellent for cutting, also short enough to use in mixed containers. 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. This shorter selection may not require support or staking. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
