Delphinium elatumcandle larkspur
Long stalks with bright blue flowers; it’s not hard to see why the delphinium elatum is so popular with both people and butterflies. The abundance of happy little flowers turn every corner of your garden into a colourful plant feast, and always attract many beautiful butterflies. Because the plant can grow to be quite tall, make sure you help him grow with the support of a growing stick or a wall to keep him from falling over.
Delphiniums enjoy slightly moist soil at all times, so water your plant two or three times a week in the summer. Water from sprinklers makes the flowers sag, so make sure you only water the soil. Add some fertiliser to the water once a month to help your plant grow.
A sunny spot with direct sunlight is perfect for this happy plant, but he can handle a bit of shade as well.
