Delphinium 'Sweet Sensation'


Availability : Available

Description :

No pain, no gain

Noteworthy horticultural selections are the result of long years of work and, quite often, a stroke of luck.

In its issue of 28 May 1998 the Herald Scotland paints the portrait of a quite astonishing Scottish couple, Tony and Maureen Coakley.

It all started with an unhappy sowing of Delphinium elatum which only produced one seedling that survived and then chance or fate took over and started an extraordinary story!

After long years of work, courage and perseverance, Tony and Maureen Coakley have gained an international reputation for their Clansman Series and Highlander Series. Their selections are all extraordinary and we are delighted to offer them in our perennial plant collection.

Delphinium 'Sweet Sensation' flowers in mid-summer with luminous, captivating flounces of violet mauve with bluish green highlights. The flowers have from 40 to 55 petals !

Height of the floral stems: 70 to 100 cm. Loose deeply-cut leaves.

Grow in the sun or light shade in good garden soil, which is well-drained in winter. Regular, balanced fertilisation (little and often) from March to September. As for all delphiniums, biological slug control is inevitable when the new growth starts.
