Delphinium is a large genus in the buttercup family, Ranunculaceae, with around 300 species. Most are tall perennials with a distribution in temperate regions of the northern hemisphere, reaching south to mountainous areas in Africa. Garden cultivars are numerous and more widely grown in gardens than the species.

Propagation:


Division in spring.


Seed - sown in September - February.

Seed just covered and stored outside, optimum germination temperature is 10-15°C (50-60°F). Seed has short viability and should be sown as soon as possible or stored in a refrigirator until it is sown. 

Much shorter than most delphinium varieties and doesn't need support.
