Delphinium 'Pacific Giants Astolat'

The tall stars of the early summer border, Astolat bears unusual lavender-pink semi-double blooms on tall spires, each flower with a dark centre, or 'bee'. By deadheading, new flower spikes will be produced from side-shoots.

At "only" 1.5m tall, they're more compact than traditional varieties, with flowers rising from attractive clumps of deeply cut foliage.

In Your Garden Design

The semi-double flowers look great in summer arrangements in large vases, especially when mixed with other cottage garden-type blooms.

Delphiniums are loved by pollinating insects, so you will have something lovely to look at and you'll be helping out your garden's ecosystem.

Perfect for the back of the border, these cottage garden favourites reach a height of 1.5m, so it's important to stake them and make sure they are in a sheltered position, especially if they are in large pots. Try planting them in a sunny corner or against a wall where plants will get some protection.

Cosmos are great companion plants to go in front.

Did You Know?

Delphinium is the birth flower for July and expresses positivity and openness.

Cultivation Instructions

Plant in a sunny, sheltered spot but will tolerate partial shade. Likes rich, well-drained soils with added humus. Space 75cm apart and water well. Stake when planting to protect from winds. Plant in large containers avoiding a windy spot and stake well.

Water well until established and feed throughout the growing season. Protect against slugs, snails and caterpillars. Deadhead to promote flowers on side shoots. Divide in spring.
