When we think of Delphiniums, we think of towering, airy spikes of gorgeous blossoms. A classic cottage garden favorite, these charmers add an old-fashioned touch wherever they're planted. Delphinium blooms can arrive single or double, and although blue is the most common color, they're also available in red, pink, white, and violet.
Attractive mounds of deep green foliage surround the graceful flower stalks, creating a dramatic summertime display. While taller varieties are ideal for creating vertical interest in garden backdrops, all types make wonderful cut flowers for bouquets and other arrangements. Give these botanical beauties a sunny home that's sheltered from strong winds.
