Delphinium "Sandpiper"

26th June, 2011

Delphinium "Sandpiper"
Second in my five delphiniums would be Sandpiper. A touch flat headed as opposed to spiring, but hugely dramatic. The white is clean and the bee a nice complimentary brown/black. It reaches 5-6 feet with me and is a stunner in the border, I don't think a day goes by when its in flower that someone doesn't ask for one. A sweetly feminine plant.
