Delphinium 'Flamenco'

Delphinium 'Flamenco' is a huge improvement on previous double flowering varieties. Double delphiniums have been around for years, but older forms often produce weak, disease-prone plants.

Compact plants produce sturdy flower spikes, covered in fully double frilly rosettes. The elegant blooms are the perfect summer border filler and also perform well in container displays.
