We continue to grow many perennials but our first obsession was with the British strain of Delphinium elatum from which we bred our Delphiniums. These strong, hardy plants with their impressive floral display truly deserve the title, ‘Queen of the Border’. Potted plants are available for shipping and at the nursery beginning in early spring until late autumn. The plants that are shipped will be removed from pots but much of the soil will remain.
Delphinium elatum are hybrids and therefore do not produce identical seedlings. Colours include various shades of blue, purple, pink and bicolour (both blue and purple on the same floret) as well as white. All plants are guaranteed to be at least semi-double with no fewer than 13 petals. Variations in growth and colour may occur due to location, atmosphere, soil conditions, etc.
Delphinium plants propagated from cuttings are identical to the original plant. We will be offering select Blossom Hill Nursery varieties in very limited numbers. These are strong vigorous delphinium varieties that have grown in our gardens for many years.
