Purple Passion Delphinium
Cut them for the vase, or leave them for the hummingbirds!
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.
