Butterfly IconHummingbird Icon

Plant Type: Perennials

Rich blue blooms with a dark blue bee.  Saturated with deep blue color, the flowers crowd all along the spike for a very bushy, colorful affect!  The bloom stalks are about a foot long atop 24- to 28-inch plants. A mini Delphinium that is an attention-getter and never needs staking!  A good choice for the front of the border or for smaller gardens, where vertical color without too much height is appreciated! Magic Fountain blooms in early to midsummer.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

The only choice for the front of the border or for smaller gardens, where vertical color without too much height is appreciated! Magic Fountain blooms in early to midsummer. It does best in full sun or, in warmer climates, partial shade. Once the plant is established, shear it back almost to the ground right after flowering to encourage a second bloom in fall.
