Guardian Blue Delphinium produces tall dark blue, purple spike blossoms. Part of the Guardian series which were bred for uniform flowers and early blossoms. These re-bloomers will bloom in early to mid-summer and continue if the growing season is long enough and they have been trimmed back in time to grow again. Plant in the back of the garden and stake if not protected from the wind for best results. Guardian blue Delphinium make an excellent cutting flower because of their thick stems and are deer resistant. (Delphinium)

Plant Information

Choose the right spot.This is important. These plants need excellent well-drained soil, rich in humus. And maybe even more important, they need some protection from the wind and rain. Blowing wind and rain can ruin them, just when you're expecting the big bloom. Don't let that happen. Choose some spot with something behind them--a wall, a tall strong plant, something.

Comments about American Meadows Guardian Blue Delphinium:

Planted this for the first time in early spring. First stem shot up and bloomed in mid June and more continued blooming into late July. For me, each stem bloom lasted about 10-14 days. Stems are thin and the blooms are heavy, causing them to droop or even snap. A simple stake fixes this. Cannot wait to see how many pop up next year.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
