Finally! A traditional looking Delphinium in a convenient size. These Dwarf Hybrid Bee Delphinium are simply showstoppers, coming in at 2.5' tall the mixed shades of purple, chiffon blue, cream, mauve, lavender, and pink flowers rise above most garden foliage, but still come in at a manageable size. Some have contrasting centers and others have full solid flowers. All of them look like they should be in a classic painting. This cultivar has strong stems and has less risk of toppling than the taller varieties.

Delphinium are a  a classic flower - they are often featured in artwork and a stable of the classic English cottage style garden. These plants thrive when used to add color and vertical height to a small space. The flower buds are easily recognizable as they shoot upward as spikes during the start of the bloom season. Once they bloom, delphinium draw the eye due to their appealing texture and color. If planted in an exposed area with windy conditions we recommend staking the flower stalks for protection. Even though this cultivar has strong stems the weight of the flowers can cause breakage in windy conditions.

General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.

Delphinium NEW MILLENNIUM™ 'Mini Stars'

Delphinium thrive in cooler climates, although they will grow as far south as zone 7. If planted in areas that feature stretches of hot dry weather (Like us in southern Indiana!) plant them in soil rich in organic matter at a site that avoids the hottest afternoon sun. Keeping them well mulched will make a world of difference and is often the determining factor in success or failure. Use a slow release fertilizer and consider a top dressing of compost each year with mulch for best results. Powdery mildew can be a problem in the shadiest spots so having exposure to morning sun and good air circulation is the best way to prevent it.

Very Happy Gardener

I found the experience of ordering very simple. The plant arrived when I requested and has adapted well to its new environment on Cape Cod. The sellers are very knowledgeable and accommodating! I love the grow pot the plant arrived in! I would order from here again without any question!

Quick delivery, healthy and beautiful delphiniums

I took a chance on this unknown nursery and I am glad that I did. The delphiniums arrived quickly and, though just emerging, they are extremely full and vigorous with the beginnings of large blooms that suggest these will be real winners. I put them in the ground a few days ago and there was no recovery time, they are already growing.
