As avid gardeners, we have grown and continue to grow many perennials but our first obsession was with the British strain of Delphinium elatum. These strong, hardy plants with their impressive floral display truly deserve the title, ‘Queen of the Border’. Each year we hybridize and select for improved plant and flower characteristics but the best plants from early years remain in our gardens. Some of our delphiniums are more than fifteen years old in their original locations.
Blossom Hill delphiniums have won the only two Bronze Medallions from The U.K. Delphinium Society, presented at the Ontario Delphinium Club field days. More than 1000 Delphinium elatum plants grow in our display and trial beds, along with the peony collection and numerous other perennials.
Delphiniums continue to be a family and customer favourite, as we hybridize and grow our own Canadian strain of Delphinium elatum. Potted plants are available at the nursery beginning in early spring until late autumn.
Delphinium plants are available for shipping throughout the season but we recommend either spring or fall when the weather is cool.
