Delphinium ‘Candle Lavender Shades’
Trial Started: 2005
Year of Trial: First (from 2005 report)
Beautiful color (6); Large individual flowers (2); Fast, nice stems, uniform.
Didn’t really like our hot summer, lost plants throughout the summer, those that survived came on quite nice this fall and are still sending up flower stalks; Didn’t get planted until late, so didn’t get as many stems as should have. Hope next spring they will be big and beautiful, and taller; I’m not sure that I could see the difference between ‘Lavender’ and ‘Violet’; No germination; Root disease wiped out this variety by early September in field and tunnel.
Change water daily; Used an STS solution and really helps with shattering- 8 hours; then Crysal #2
