A new breeding success by the Dowdeswell’s, the Mini Stars tend to grow about a half to 2/3 the height of traditional delphiniums and have very strong stocky stems. Individual plants will be a mix of pastel blue, purples, mauves, and occasional pink.
Selected in New Zealand, the New Millennium Delphinium strains outperform all other tall types and offer some astonishingly rich shades. This variety is meant for the smaller garden. A true dwarf variety that produces large spires of mixed coloured blooms in shades of purple, blue pink and cream; some with contrasting bees. Will not require staking. Removing spent spikes right after flowering will encourage repeat blooming in fall. In hot, humid summer regions Delphinium plants do not usually last more than 2 to 3 years. The plant is considered poisonous.
