Delphinium ‘Pacific Giants’ is an old distinguished variety that produces strong spikes of semi-double blooms in a dreamy blend of colours. They are clump forming perennials, with fleshy crowns and tall spikes of closely grouped cup shaped flowers with prominent eyes (or bees). Their palmate and lobed leaves are usually below the spikes. They are excellent for cutting, ideal as feature plants, they add structure and presence to the back of any perennial border or cottage garden. Bring a touch of nostalgia back to the garden, they are worth almost any effort to grow because they are so beautiful.
The ‘Round Table’ strain is an advance so far as colour is concerned, for apart from the many blue shades, there are purples, pinks, lilacs and whites, many with a dark central ‘bee’. The Round Table series contains nine colours, and a mix each with a cultivar name relevant to Camelot.
Delphinium 'Galahad' is a subtle and beautiful delphinium with spires of elegant white blooms. The florets are closely placed on tall stems. Planted in groups of three or more, it will form a dramatic backdrop to any mixed or herbaceous border.
This is 'the' Delphinium, a magnificent and noble hardy perennial plant for the back of the border, and a favourite with everyone. Huge 3” double summer flowers are excellent for cutting. When first flower spike is removed immediately after bloom, additional spikes quickly form. Plants grow 4-7 ft tall, need staking to protect heavy flower spikes from the wind. The palmate-shaped leaves are large.
