Delphinium Highlander™Series hybrid Sweet Sensation USPP#20341
Inventor: Tony Coakley- Glasgow, Scotland
Plants: These blue-green-tinged multi-petalled whorled flowers in deep royal mauve stand proudly upright on 40-cm stems. The stunning bud starts out dark purple. The sturdy flower spike supports some 30 florets and holds itself high where often other delphiniums fall down. Each 50-petal floret is 6 cm in diameter and 2.1 cm deep. Foliage is a lovely medium green, starting in a rosette arrangement at the plant base and alternating along the flowering stem. This double dwarf 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.

Care: Plant in full sun to part shade. Keep well watered, well drained and well fertilized for best flowering and growth. Grows in most soils but results are best in humis-rich soil. Prune spent flowers stalks and old shoots to encourage re-blooming.
