Delphinium 'Summer Skies' (Pacific Hybrid) (Large Plant)

Hardy Perennial

Another of the Pacific Hybrids and this one is no less beautiful! Astonishing, tall spikes of pale blue flowers create plenty of vertical interest in herbaceous borders from June to July. Delphinium 'Summer Skies' is prized by flower arrangers for its unusual coloured blooms, and is equally loved by pollinating insects as a rich source of nectar. Height: 150cm (5'). Spread: 75cm (30").

  1. Very puny plants!

    By Catherine Lawton 21-04-2016

    Received my delphiniums yesterday, and they have clearly only just been potted up from modules into 1l pots. They are very puny and weak - much smaller than the 9cm potted foxgloves I received the week before. I will have to grow them on for a good while before they can go into the garden. Very disappointed. Don't bother buying these, because you'll mainly be paying for an expensive pot of compost!
