Delphinium ‘Guardian White’
Years Trialed: 2003
Excellent white (2); Productive, healthy plants for 1st year delphinium; Strong stems; Good stem length for everyday bouquets, not too big; Quick from seed, pretty uniform; Tallest of four delphinium trialed.
While delphinium with a white bee is “boring,” my customers prefer ‘Percival’, with a dark bee; On the short side, but planted late and first year; Mildew due to wet conditions; Did not perform in Zone 11; Started too late, no blooms.
