Answer: Delphiniums are beautiful plants and I have seen some lovely ones grown in your area. However, they can be very tricky if our weather turns hot and humid, which it often does. They are not usually very long lived in our areas as a result. This plant also blooms in early summer and may possibly rebloom, so it would probably not be in bloom at the same timeas the other two flowers. Instead of such a finicky plant, you might look at some annuals that that bloom prolifically such as the salvia "Victoria Blue" or the new "Crystal Blue" if you need blue flowers, or possibly a zinnia or for blooms at the same time as your other two, perhaps tithonia or cosmos. Cupid's Dart, asters, achillea, purple coneflowers, black eyed Susans, and bachelor's buttons are all nice cut flowers as well. All of the flowers I have named are easy to grow. I hope this gives you a little more information to use in your decision making.
