Delphinium ‘Magic Fountains Cherry Blossom’


Magic Fountains Delphinium

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.175.690


Delphiniums are the stars of the early summer border. Plants form low mounds of deeply-cut green leaves with upright spikes of satiny flowers. This shorter variety only reaches up to 90cm (36") and should not require staking. It features lovely pink blossoms with a white eye, or "bee". Removing faded spikes at the base will encourage repeat blooming in fall. In hot, humid summer regions, plants do not usually last more than 2 to 3 years. Plants are often attacked by mildew in mid summer; simply cut back hard to encourage fresh foliage. Use a high phosphorous fertilizer each year, in early spring. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
