Wow, a bit of a showstopper, 'Faust' draws attention not only for its size but also the intense deep blue-purple double flowers with a black eye that pack its dramatic flowerspikes from mid summer into early autumn. Standing very tall and proud above green divided foliage, this Delphinium definitely makes a bold statement in the border.
Its extraordinary colour mixes brilliantly with other jewel colours such as oranges, yellows and pinks but also sings out contrasted against whites, a classic clean colour combination. Bring the drama indoors by growing them in your cutting garden too as they last well in arrangements. It thrives in full sun, in a fertile, free draining soil but needs to be staked.
Harmful if eaten.
