After years of breeding, new Delphinium Amara Petra is especially suited for growing in containers but equally happy in borders too. First seen in 2015, but only available for purchase since 2020. Stunning spires of light blue blooms, each with a dark, almost black-blue eye, grow to just over 1m tall, above compact clumps of the trademark Delphinium foliage. In summer, large, frilly rosettes are held on stems that are so strong they do not require staking and are actually used commercially for cut flower production so perfect cut for your home too. A true statement piece in a classic country garden, Amara Petra is equally at home in more modern planting schemes and loves to grow in borders too, spreading to approximately 40-60cm. Being fully hardy, Delphinium Petra prefers to be grown in moist, well-drained soil in sun or part shade and will be enjoyed for years to come with no winter protection.
