Cut them for the vase, or leave them for the hummingbirds!

The best for hot, humid climates!
Love Delphinium but can't always make it last when the summer heat sets in? You're not alone! Purple Passion was bred specially in New Zealand to combat hot, humid climates where older varieties give up too soon. You're going to love this robust, beautiful perennial!

Deep purple blooms with a purple-and-white striped "bee" (that central cluster of petals in each flower) open in great numbers for 3 months or more on Purple Passion. Cut them for the vase or let the hummingbirds enjoy them in the sunny garden! The staying power is just tremendous.

Like most Delphiniums, Purple Passion attracts butterflies as well as hummingbirds, is not appealing to nibbling rabbit and deer, and makes excellent cut-flowers, whether fresh or dried. This sun-lover is easy to grow, and appreciates deadheading so that it doesn't devote its energy to setting seed. Enjoy years of beauty with Purple Passion! Zones 3-7.
