An occasional (depending on how busy I am gardening!) comment on beautiful plants or moments as they happen in our garden.

Delphinium ' Guinevere'

By roses382, May 18 2017 08:28PM

It's not often that the delphiniums are in full flower by mid May, but that is the case this year. This one is Guinevere, a lovely light soft lavender, which harmonises beautifully with the new growth on the Eucalytus Gunnii 'Azura' which is growing close by. This year I have taken some basal cuttings so that I can repeat- plant in the long borders. Luckily I am not troubled too much with slugs and snails, I put this down to our large bird population, and the Delphiniums grow without any problems. Last year, with regular deheading, they were in bloom on and off for a good deal of the summer.
