Delphinium ‘Guardian Early Blue’
Years Trialed: 2003
Beautiful blue (2); Marginally earlier than ‘Guardian Blue’; Very pretty flower, liked the color better than ‘Guardian Blue’; Good stem strength; Large blossoms.
Poor germination than others in the series, and seedlings were more spindly; Did not perform in Zone 11; Plants and stems never grew very tall, maybe because of weather and fertility; Started too late, no blooms, good healthy plants though; Wimpy transplants, poor germination.
