Availability: Out of Stock
This charming blend of dwarf delphiniums performs better in the heat than others, and is an excellent choice for small spaces, or as an accent in the border or cottage garden. Prolific plants will bloom the first year, producing marine blue, light blue, soft rose, or white flowers. Grows well in containers and spots where the wind might topple taller varieties. Unlike traditional delphiniums, the dwarf type is a native of China, first introduced to England in 1818.

Started these seedlings indoors in late spring, then transplanted into the garden. These little plants were tough, made it through heat waves and drought, and survived where a lot of seedlings from other plants didn't. They haven't flowered yet, but are doing well and I'm very pleased with how easy and forgiving they are.

The seeds did not germinate well. The few that did germinate died shortly after.

Owner Response: Hi Melinda, A customer service agent will be with you soon to see how we can help. It may be worth investigating the soil there because of the seedling that died after germinating. This can happen from dampening off or there could be something off about the soil that a soil test could help illuminate. At any rate, please rest assured that we do guarantee our seeds' germination and do test them frequently to ensure they exceed industry standards and our own. Happy gardening!
