#ProPlantTips for Care:

You'll want to plant your Million Dollar Blush Delphinium somewhere it can soak up the sun all day long. Delphinium needs to be planted in rich, moist soil that is well-drained in a good air circulation location and should never experience drought. Keep the soil moist but never soggy. They do appreciate some afternoon shade. Water at the base of the plant and keep the foliage as dry as possible. Add 3-4 inches of organic mulch around the base of the plant to help maintain moisture and buffer heat and cold.

These stronger stems rarely need any staking when planted in a protected area, but if you do grow them in windy locations, a sturdy stake helps lend support. Cut the summer flower stalks to the ground immediately after flowering for a second burst of bloom in the fall. Then as the foliage turns yellow in the fall, prune back the leaves and stems close to the ground and water it in well before the ground freezes.

Delphiniums are also heavy feeders. The addition of compost or manure to the soil, as well as a granular fertilizer, will result in healthier, stronger plants. It is recommended you wear gloves when handling these plants since some can develop skin sensitivity. Always monitor young pets and young children around Delphinium.
