Delphinium Highlander™Series hybrid ‘Crystal Delight’USPP#20339

This plant’s carnation-like blossom has frilled edges. Its multiple petals are a non-fading luxurious pale lilac, offset with green centres. Foliage is a medium green, starting in a rosette arrangement at the plant base and alternating along the flowering stem. Each floret has 43 petals, is 5 cm in diameter and 2.5 cm deep. This delphinium looks ravishing in the middle or front of the perennial garden – great for showing off how unique it is. It is also wonderful as a cut flower. All this beauty stands proudly upright on a flower stem 70 cm in length. This sturdy spike supports some 53 flowers and holds itself high where other delphiniums often fall down.
