Buy Delphinium 'King Arthur Group' delphinium: Helps add depth of colour to the palette


  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spectacular spires of semi-double, plum-purple flowers, each with a white eye, appear in June and July above deeply lobed, mid-green leaves. These brightly coloured delphiniums look fantastic towards the back of a sunny, well-drained border. Shorter-lived than many other varieties of delphinium, they nonetheless make excellent and long-lasting cut-flowers.

  • Garden care: For best results, plant in an open spot with fertile, freely-draining soil and protect the young foliage against slug and snail damage. During the growing season, apply a seaweed or balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks. While wearing gloves, stake the emerging flower spike with a stout bamboo cane and tie it in as it grows. Cutting back the faded flower stems to a flowering side shoot will help encourage a second flush of flowers.

This is an interesting Delphinium both because it easily attained 7 feet high and because the individual blooms on each stem are widely spaced making this a versatile plant. It is robust and self supporting for the most part and flowered from June to October.
