These would just have to be the queen of all perennials and surprisingly the most cold tolerant plant that you can imagine with brand new foliage capable of pushing its way through even snow. This perennial just loves a good rich position in full sun and is easily grown. Mind the slugs with the new emerging leaves as they must be just delicious.
Oh these are just lovely for those of you who can't resist pink. Tall spires of large frilly flowers in rich mulberry pink highlighted with a central dark brown zone called a 'bee'. Plant in a sunny spot in nice humus rich soil. Support with a stake if you have a windy garden. Perennial.
Delphiniums are gross feeders i.e. they like lots of tucker, especially organic matter. They respond well to being planted with sheep pellets.
