When it comes to delphiniums we know there is only one man to talk to about finding the next best thing - New Zealand breeder Terry Dowdeswell. He's outdone himself with Delphinium 'Cobalt Dreams'. This special selection produces the most perfect blue blooms you'll ever see, and are given an extra boost by the fluffy 'white bees' in the centre of each flower! Even more impressive, there's no need to stake these strong delphinium plants, making them the ideal border flower for exposed gardens. Disease resistance, long flowering and repeat blooming were high on the agenda when developing this stunning delphinium, guaranteeing excellent garden performance and vibrant colour right through summer. Height: 150cm (60"). Spread: 90cm (36").
Feed and water delphinium plants until they are fully established. The tall stems of delphinium flowers will require staking with stout canes. Canes should be put in place by mid spring to ensure that the plants are adequately supported throughout the growing season. Cut spikes of faded delphinium flowers back to a flowering side-shoot to encourage a second flush of blooms to be produced. In autumn, cut the old foliage back to ground level. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
When growing Delphiniums, choose a sunny position that is sheltered from strong winds, on moist, well drained soil. Protect young delphinium plants from slugs and snails.
