Delphinium ‘Guardian Lavender’
Years Trialed: 2003
Terrific color (5); Productive, healthy plants; Strong stems, attractive; Nice full flower heads, strong stems, lovely 2-tone; Very good stem strength, good for everyday bouquet use; Large flowers; Healthy plant, good size and transplanted well; Bloomed well once plants were sized up.
Poor germination (2); Mildew (2); Color is a bit washed out; Plants and stems never grew very tall, maybe because of weather and fertility; Lost a lot to damping off in plug trays; Started too late, no blooms; Both ‘Guardians’ sometimes produced side shoots before main stem in our trials.
