New Millenium Delphinium

A few years ago, New Millennium Delphiniums were introduced to the U.S. from New Zealand breeder Terry Dowdswell.   The New Millenium Series, are D. elatum types, the majestic English Delphinium Hybrid. They are generally regarded as far superior to any other varieties.

In Truckee, we have found them to be hardy, strong stemmed and with incredible flowers. The plants are hardy, disease resistant and grow to 6' so they'll benefit from staking. If they are cut back to 8" after blooming they will resprout and re-bloom in late summer. We have an excellent selection of the 9 colors available.

"On trial at the RHS Garden in Wisley they were awarded the coveted Award of Garden Merit, AGM. AGM indicates the plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit. AGM is given to plants, after trial, that have shown outstanding excellence for garden decoration and can be easily grown by the amateur gardener."
