Product Information

The Highlanders are no ordinary Delphiniums! The sumptuous, four-inch flowers stand out brightly and have around 50 petals which merge into tightly double centres. Moonlight has lilac rosettes with green centres and blooms from May to July. Cut back and it will reflower at the end of summer.

Tough and hardy, they have been bred in Scotland and can take much harsher weather conditions than regular kinds so last much longer than standard delphiniums.

Highlander Delphiniums are bold and vigorous, yet at around 3ft tall they are just a little shorter so can be grown without the need for staking.

Supplied an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready for planting out.

Care Information

  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
  • The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.
