Go Back Delphinium Dark Blue with White Bee Magic Fountains

Delphinium elatum 'Magic Fountains Dark Blue with White Bee'

Plant Type: Perennials

Quality, upright dark blue flowers with white centers appear in early to midsummer, creating an eye-catching scene in your small garden or border!  Saturated with deep blue, the flowers crowd all along the spike for a very bushy, colorful effect.  A mini Delphinium that is an attention-getter and never needs staking! The bloom stalks are about a foot long atop 24- to 28-inch plants.  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.


Growing & Maintenance Tips:


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.
