Description / Aurora™ Blue Delphinium

Aurora™ Blue Delphinium emerges as the epitome of blue delphinium excellence, combining unparalleled growth vigor with a remarkable uniformity that sets it apart from other cultivars. Its robust structure supports magnificent spires adorned with vivid blue semi-double florets, each highlighted by a striking pure white center, or "bee." Flourishing from early to midsummer, these delphinium blue flowers transform the garden into a vibrant haven for a myriad of pollinators, including bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, thus playing a crucial role in the ecosystem.

This variety is distinguished not only by its floral beauty but also by its architectural foliage. The Aurora Blue delphinium constructs an upright mound of dark green leaves, deeply lobed and rich in texture, making it an exceptional choice for garden borders. While it exhibits its full potential when planted in groups, its sheer presence also allows it to stand alone as a stunning accent or specimen within the garden landscape. Adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions, from neutral to alkaline or acidic, it proves to be a versatile performer that can rise to several feet tall, injecting a dramatic burst of color into any setting.

For gardeners looking to maintain the Aurora Blue's majestic stature and vibrant delphinium blue blooms, positioning it in a sheltered location away from the harsh effects of wind is advisable. Staking the delphinium blue flower stems individually ensures stability, while diligent pruning of spent stems encourages a rejuvenating bloom in the fall, prolonging the display of its breathtaking delphinium blue flowers.

With its commanding presence and the ability to attract a host of pollinators, Aurora Blue Delphinium is a must-have for any garden seeking to enhance its aesthetic appeal and biodiversity. Its care and cultivation are a rewarding endeavor, promising a garden that is not only a feast for the eyes but also a sanctuary for wildlife.

Incorporating Aurora Blue Delphinium into your garden is a surefire way to bring a touch of splendor and vibrancy to your outdoor space. This blue delphinium stands as a testament to beauty and resilience, inviting gardeners to revel in its splendor.
