Description

Delphinium 'Polar Sensation' is a remarkable delphinium variety that produces dazzling white and green petals, creating beautiful ruffled flowers. The lovely blooms, with double layers of petals, circulate around a sturdy green stem that is free-standing, and reaches a height of around 80-100cm. It flowers from June, through to August. With its eye-catching spires of double flowers, Delphinium 'Polar Sensation' makes the perfect addition to any summer garden!

It will flourish in a garden border or patio container in well-drained, fertile soil. It will be best in a sunny spot, but make sure the soil does not dry out in summer. It is also a great choice for anyone looking to create a cottage-style garden. First bred in Scotland, this delphinium is capable of withstanding harsher weather conditions. As if this is not enough, the flower spires of Delphinium elatum 'Highlander Polar Sensation®'may be cut and brought indoors to make magnificent cut-flower arrangements!
