Light: Full-Part Sun
Flowering Time: Summer
A classic cottage garden plant. Delphinium Astolat has beautiful tall spires of flowers. Mid summer blooming with petals of lavender/pink on long flower heads. Needs some shelter from the wind and/or some support to prevent stem breakage. Carefully stake each flower spike as it develops; the flower stalks are very brittle. After flowers are spent, cut stalks back to just above the first leaves for continued flower production. Remove old growth in fall after frost or before new growth begins in spring. Loves a sheltered but sunny position on good garden soil.
