Delphiniums are the stars of the early summer border. Plants form a low mound of deeply-cut green leaves, bearing tall spikes of satiny flowers. This mid-sized selection has bright lavender-mauve petals and strong stems that are great for cutting. Remove faded flower spikes to 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 spring.
