Types Of Delphiniums
Delphiniums are truly splendid! Can you imagine growing Delphiniums like in this border or how about living in that castle?!
Every year we are astonished by their regal colors and elegant stature. Delphiniums come in an array of beautiful colors but are most famous for their astounding blue shades.
Delphinium sizes vary as well. The shortest ones are only about 12" tall like the Delphinium Summer Nights. The medium-height delphiniums, like the Magic Fountain Sky Blue, run about 2-3 feet and are less likely to need staking. Then there are the tallest Delphiniums that can grow as tall as 6 Ft. like the Pacific Giant BlueJay.
Delphiniums peak bloom period is early to midsummer and may continue late into the fall. Each variety's bloom time can vary up to a week and thereby provide additional bloom time. We cut back spent blooms in our garden and just leave a couple of inches of growth near the soil level. That will further encourage later blooming. We have even seen blooms in November!
