Nothing is worse than watching your lovely tall spikes of blooming delphiniums get flattened by rain and wind.

They are beautiful. I have tried to grow them here, but just gave up. They do not like the Stry west Tennessee heat here. Will make it sometimes one season, sometimes not. Love that rich beautiful blue. Where are you located??

Donna, thank you. I am in Minnesota. Have you tried the New Millenium (New Zealand) varieties? I tried three other varieties and they did not live more than a year or two, but these seem to be indestructible.

Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.

No I have not Jeanie. But I figure our sweltering 7b summer heat would kill them. It's sultry here.
