DELPHINIUM elatum 'Cd7'( DWARF DOUBLE SERIES)
Dwarf Double Delphinium
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The DWARF series of delphinium, hybrids of candle delphinium, bear loose spires of double flowers in early summer. DWARF double 'Cd7' bears lush lilac- colored flowers tinged with deep blue with green centers. The flowers arise from basal clumps of lance-shaped, gray-green leaves. DWARF delphiniums are shorter than their towering cousins and rarely need to be staked. Plants may rebloom in fall if they are cut back after flowering.
Choose sunny locations for DWARF delphiniums; the soil should be fertile and well drained. Cut back all growth to the ground after the foliage has withered. Plant delphinium in cottage gardens, informal borders, and wildflower plantings. And, don't forget to plant a few in the cutting garden; delphinium are staples of summer bouquets.
