Your Very Own NEW MILLENNIUM™ Purple Passion Delphinium

  • Dense Deep Purple Spires
  • Strong Stems Do Not Need Stakes
  • Attracts Hummingbird and Butterflies

Purple Passion Delphinium (Delphinium elatum 'Purple Passion'), is one flower you will spot from quite a distance! Purple Passion Delphinium sports intense, deep purple blossoms with a purple and white striped throat.

The densely packed flower spikes are produced on very strong stems that do not require staking. Large, deeply incised, green leaves make this plant attractive even when it's not in bloom.

Hummingbirds and butterflies adore the blossoms. Individual plants make lovely specimens in the garden and groupings are spectacular. Deer and rabbits will stay away.

Purple Passion Delphiniums grow 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 additions of compost or manure to the soil, as well as a granular fertilizer, will result in healthier, stronger plants. Cut back the first flush of blooms quickly to stimulate rebloom.

Purple Passion Delphinium has a neat compact habit. It belongs to the 'New Millenium' Series, that is renowned for the excellent form, strong stems, and the vigorous growth habit of its hybrids. They are more tolerant of the heat and humidity.

'Purple Passion' will amaze you anywhere you plant it. This is a welcome addition to beds and borders, cottage and cutting gardens. For the best visual impact, plant them in groups. Perfect for your cut flowers to enjoy inside!

Make your landscape happy with this Purple Passion Delphinium from Nature Hills!
