Welcome stately spires of beautiful salmon-red flowers into your garden this summer - we guarantee they will brighten up your borders like never before!
Coral is a rare colour in garden flowers generally and unknown amongst Delphiniums, so be sure to make the most of this unusual colour whilst you can.
This truly is a colour to be prized and effortlessly blends with other sunset shades or contrasting colours such as cornflower blues and deep violets.
The flowers are borne on 2m stems that rise elegantly above clumps of divided green foliage and provide a vertical spectacle between June and late summer. They are perfect at the back of beds and borders and will instantly provide your outdoor space with a cottage garden feel.
Loved by bees and other pollinating insects, the flowers will attract wildlife into your garden, making them a helpful addition when it comes to assisting Mother Nature. They are also ideal for cutting so you can create wonderful floral displays and bring the beauty indoors.
