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 March.

Seed just covered and kept at 22°C (72°F) until germination. After germination it should be kept at a lower temperature with plenty of light so the plants won't become lanky.

A strain from the New Millenium series with dusky pink flowers. Needs good shelter and staking.
