This is a rare opportunity to grow one the most unusual—and delightful—of modern delphiniums. Delphinium 'Rainbow Sensation' has flowers that are fully double and pink-lilac, but with a creamy yellow centre. When the flowers are just open, there are blue tints on the outer petals. The whole effect is of a muted rainbow—hence its name!

The flower rosettes are produced during summer, and held high, on strong stems. Well, we say high, but actually being one of the Highlander™ series of delphiniums, this is shorter than most, with stems just 80-100cm or so high, meaning that it is suitable for growing in a container, as well as the border. 

The Highlander™ delphiniums, bred in Scotland, are tough and hardy, and very well suited to the British climate. Able to grow well in full sun or part shade, Delphinium elatum 'Highlander Rainbow Sensation®' will be best in a sunny spot, but make sure the soil does not dry out in summer. Oh, and did we say, its flowers are excellent for cutting, too, lasting well in a vase indoors!

  • Plant your Delphinium bare roots straight outside during spring
  • Soak the roots in water for 30 minutes before planting
  • Grow in borders or containers in full sun or partial shade
  • Spread the roots out in the planting hole so that any growing points are just above soil level, and not buried
  • Space the plants about 35-30cm apart
  • Water-in after planting, and do not allow the ground to dry out in summer; watering regularly during the flowering period will help prolong the flowering period
