Blue Lace Delphinium
Spires of Sky
Delphinium Blue Lace, Delphinium elatum 'Blue Lace', is adorned with elegant spires of true sky blue flowers. Each flower has lavender-pink accents. The plant blooms in early summer.
'Blue Lace' is a New Zealand hybrid delphinium that boasts strong stiff stems that rarely require staking.
It has excellent rebloom in late summer and fall if spent flowers are removed.
'Blue Lace' is longer-lived than older varieties and has good powdery mildew resistance!
The large deeply incised leaves are deer and rabbit resistant!
Delphinium 'Blue Lace' grows best in rich, well-drained soil with a basic pH. If your soil is naturally acidic, adding lime will help to provide these conditions.
They are also heavy feeders. The addition of compost or manure to the soil, as well as a granular fertilize, will result in healthier, stronger plants.
Cut back the first flush of blooms quickly to stimulate rebloom.
Since their stems are hollow, taller varieties of delphiniums should be staked to prevent damage from wind and rain.
