Pure Sky-Blue Bliss for the Sunny Garden!

Blooms in early summer, then repeats as summer turns to fall.
At last, Delphiniums with terrific staying power in just about any weather! The New Millennium™ series is bred with stronger stems, more petals, richer colors, and an overall weather tolerance that can't be beat! Even if Delphiniums have struggled in your garden in the past, you'll find these to be top performers over many seasons -- not to mention outstandingly beautiful!

Sunny Skies is a hard-to-find shade of pure sky blue, absolutely stunning in garden and vase. You'll love these tall, thick, flower-packed stems, which arise first in early summer, then again (if cut or deadheaded promptly after the first bloom) in late summer and early fall!.

Sunny Skies reaches 4 to 6 feet high, the top portion completely devoted to glorious blooms! The flowers continue for 3 weeks in each season, giving you more than a month of the darkest, brightest, richest blue color your garden and vase have ever seen.

Most Delphiniums do well in cool and moderate climates, but the New Millennium™ series is one of the very few to tolerate hot, humid gardens. The best choice for the south and midwest, these plants can put up with the late-afternoon thundershowers and warm nights that are so characteristic of summer in these regions. (The strong stems come in handy during those summer storms!) Nibbling deer and rabbits leave them alone, which is a nice bonus. And as if this weren't enough, the New Millenniums™ are also longer-lived than older strains, giving you a few extra seasons of beauty!

Hand-crossed by Terry Dowdeswell in New Zealand from British hybrids, the New Millenniums™ are certain to become the stars of your sunny borders and cutflower arrangements! Zones 3-7.
