Delphinium x belladonna

Perennial (Zone 3)

Full Sun to Partial Shade

Blooms Late Summer

40”-60” Tall

Plant 12” apart as an Annual, 18” as a Perennial


A hardy perennial that flowers in the first year. Well branched plants produce spikes of dark blue, turquoise, or white. Very attractive to bees and butterflies, and tolerates partial shade. Blooms in late summer, and a second bloom in early fall can be induced if the flowers stalks are cut back after the first bloom. May need staking or other support, especially in windy areas, and typically live for 3 years. All parts of the plant are poisonous including the seeds, and care should be taken, apparently especially around cattle.
