Delphiniums are currently my favorite flower. While I must nurse many of our plants through our extreme seasons, delphiniums seem to thrive on our long cold winters. And they don’t mind our hot summers, as long as I give them a little water each day.
I have really become fond of these hardy, low maintenance perennials!
They emerge in March and steadily grow throughout the spring and begin flowering in late spring. After the flowers are spent, I cut the stem right below the flowers. It doesn’t take them long to recover and flower again and again.
