Delphinium 'Bruce'

Plant details

Delphiniums bear tall upright spikes laden with intensely-coloured flowers. They're a traditional staple of cottage garden schemes, providing height and a touch of drama to ornamental borders. The flowers are loved by bees and are superb for cutting.

Delphinium 'Bruce' bears velvety flowers in a deep purple, with buff eyes. It's ideal for growing towards the back of a sunny border, and works well with flowers in other shades of blue.

For best results grow Delphinium 'Bruce' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Although their flowering season is quite short, delphiniums can often be coaxed into producing a few later flowers if the flower spikes are cut down as soon as the blooms are over.
