Delphinium ‘Belladonna’

Belladonna Delphinium

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.176.050

This type of Delphinium is more branching in habit than the more familiar spiky types. Plants form a low mound of deeply-cut green leaves, bearing bushy, upright stems with loads of single, satiny flowers in shades of light blue. Remove spikes that are done flowering right at the base, to encourage repeat blooming. Excellent for the smaller garden, also nice in mixed containers. In hot, humid summer regions, plants do not usually last more than 2 to 3 years. Use a high phosphorous fertilizer each year, in early spring. Plants may need to be staked. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
