Product Description: Delphinium Purple Passion
Deep Purple Spires and No Stakes Delphinium Purple Passion, Delphinium elatum ‘ Purple Passion’, is one flower you will spot from quite a distance! Delphinium ‘ Purple Passion’ sports intense, deep purple blossoms with a purple and white striped bee.
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.
‘ 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 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.
