Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Ancestor of many of the modern delphinium hybrids, this tall herbaceous perennial is native to Europe. Spires of purple flowers arise in early summer from basal clumps of roundish, lobed leaves. Plants may rebloom in fall if cut back after flowering.
Choose sunny to partly sunny locations for candle delphinium; the soil should be fertile and well drained. It is much less prone to flopping, pests, and disease than are most of its hybrids. Use it in cottage gardens, informal borders, and wildflower plantings.
