Introducing Delphinium 'Centurion Lilac Blue Bicolor' F1 Hybrid

We've launched another season of seed starting - our 155th! One of the New & Exclusive varieties we have is a cottage garden favorite. Delphinium 'Centurion Lilac Blue Bicolor' F1 Hybrid (above) is a variety any cottage garden enthusiast would adore.

Delphinium 'Centurion Lilac Blue Bicolor' is one of the highest quality Delphiniums from seed, equal in quality to those often-expensive cutting-raised plants. It grows 150cm (5 ft) tall with sturdy stems clothed in lovely bi colored blooms rarely seen before from seed.

The duplex flower (triple layered petals) are a gorgeous combination of lilac and fluorescent blue shade with a distinctive white central bee. Delphinium 'Centurion Lilac Blue Bicolor' F1 Hybrid will flower in the first year form July to September if sown by the end of February. The plants will bloom form late May to mid July in the second year. (Hardy Perennial, Zones 4-7)
