General Description

Mistral snow delphinium is a hybrid of delphinium grandiflorum and as such is native to China, Japan and the Siberian region. The delicate, branched sprays of white flowers are a nice compliment to the narrow, green foliage. Delphiniums can grow in a variety of soil types but prefer well-drained soil and full sun. This plant is ideal for cutflowers and also as a bedding, container-grown or border plant.
