Delphinium elatum Delphina™ 'Dark Blue White Bee' (Dwarf Delphinium)

Dwarf Delphinium 'Delphina™ 'Dark Blue White Bee', Delphina Series


Noted for its small size, Delphinium elatum Delphina™ 'Dark Blue White Bee' is a dwarf herbaceous perennial with exceptionally sturdy flower spikes, densely packed with dark blue-purple flowers with white bees. Blooming for weeks from early to mid summer, it does not require staking and looks most impressive in groups of 3-5 plants. Rising from a mound of divided, rich green foliage, this Delphinium enjoys a neat compact habit. Perfect for small gardens and containers.

  • Grows up to 14-18 in. tall (40-45 cm) and 6-10 in. wide (15-25 cm).
  • Performs best in full sun or part shade in fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Provide a sheltered location to protect your plants from strong winds.
  • Attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, but ignored by deer and rabbits!
  • Welcomed addition to beds and borders, cottage gardens or containers. For best visual impact, plant your Delphiniums in groups.
  • Removing spent flower spikes will promote another round of blooms in late summer or fall.
  • All parts of the plant may cause severe discomfort if ingested.
