- Popular and well-loved perennial for cottage garden borders

No cottage garden border is complete without the towering blooms of this hardy perennial! Delphinium ‘Pacific Hybrids’, sometimes referred to as ‘Pacific Giants’, were developed in the 1950’s and 60’s. Their majestic flower spikes rise above the palmate foliage in June and July, bringing drama and structure to borders. These statuesque plants are easy to grow, enjoying a sheltered, sunny spot. The blooms also make fabulous cut flowers for show-stopping bouquets. Height: 150cm (60”). Spread: 75cm (30”).
How to Grow
Pot up delphinium seeds using free-draining compost, and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting them outdoors. Choose a sunny position that is sheltered from strong winds, on moist, well drained soil. Protect young delphiniums from slugs and snails.
