Like a well trained school choir, 'Cristel's' individual flower spikes stand ramrod straight reaching for the sky, packed with royal purple blooms each picked out with a white bee.  More compact than some DELPHINIUM, they work well in smaller gardens where they provide drama and impact of the right scale.

A 'go-to' plant for florists due to the flower quality and ability to last well in water, they have a very versatile 'look' working well in both traditional cottage garden and more contemporary planting schemes.  For an unashamedly romantic mid to late summer combination plant them with VERONICA longifolia 'Charlotte' and PAPAVER orientale 'Perry's White'.   They thrive in full sun in any good soil - fertile, moist but free draining.
