‘Black Eyed Angels’
Brilliant white double blossoms contrast beautifully with bold black “bees” on this magnificent new variety from Dowdeswell Delphiniums in New Zealand. Bred for improved heat resistance, strong stems, vigor and longer life in the garden, while retaining cold hardiness. Reaching an impressive 4-5’ in height, with powdery mildew resistant foliage. An award winner when introduced in 2013, it really shines as a vertical accent in a sunny garden bed. A magnet for bees and hummingbirds. Blooming begins in mid-Summer and, with proper deadheading, can last well into the Fall. Cut back to 6” after initial flowering for repeat blooming. Prefers fertile, well-drained soil and additional bloom fertilizer once in bloom. Great as a cut flower. Deer and rabbit resistant. Bait for snails.
