Delphinium 'Black Eyed Angels'

New Zealand Delphiniums

Common Name: Hybrid Bee Delphinium

Aptly named, this Delphinium produces tall spires of frilly white flowers with black bees. The stems are very strong, holding up well in the landscape.  Planted en masse, they make a magnificent display in early summer.

The English hybrid type of delphiniums are bred by New Zealand Delphiniums and are hand crossed to produce the highest quality seed. These F1 hybrids have excellent form, strong stems, and a vigorous growth habit. They were selected for their improved tolerance of heat and humidity, while retaining their cold hardiness.

Delphinium are a classic garden perennial. These plants are excellent for adding height to small spaces. Their tall flower spikes are easily recognizable when they come into flower in summer. When in flower, the spikes of these plants become heavy and should be staked to avoid toppling over in rough weather, especially taller varieties. Newer hybrids are longer lived than some of the more traditional cultivars.
