Delphinium elatum Dusky Maidens Delphinium elatum Dusky Maidens

Unsurpassable in the big and tall department, THIS is one of the best Delphiniums to grow! Scrumpdillyicious, XL, mulberry colored blooms with dark, fuzzy “bees” form multiple, 3’+ spikes on ex­tremely strong stems for seriously decadent bouquets. To at least 6’ tall and 4’ across. Mid-Spring blooming, it blooms again in Fall if you cut it back and add a little compost. To-die-for cut flowers! Rich soil for awesome performance. Thanks goes again to the Dowdeswell family of New Zealand for their dedication to these towering and robust Delphiniums that grow so well for us here by the Bay! Grown from seed so color can be somewhat variable.
