Likened to fireworks, delphiniums are a real show stopper for your herbaceous borders. These tall and colourful plants are great at the back of colourful cottage garden planting schemes. They come in a variety of hues from pinks to blues to purples and make excellent cut flowers.
Delphiniums like either full sun and part-shade. They will need shelter from strong winds and their tall structure makes them vulnerable to damage.
Delphiniums have hollow stems so it is important to stake them to give them added support against heavy rain and strong winds.
Delphiniums are a real cottage garden favourite so are great planted with an number of different varieties. These include: lupins, foxgloves, echinacea, allium, roses and much much more!
