New Millenium Hybrids were developed in New Zealand to produce stronger stalks and more intensely coloured blooms. They are considered to be longer lived and more tolerant of heat and humidity.
Delphiniums are much loved by the new gardener and the connoisseur alike. Their spires of brilliant blooms are also frequently visited by hummingbirds and butterflies. They also produce a great cut flower. During the blooming period fertilize regularly with a good perennial food to help feed and maintain the plant. Delphiunium are poisonous and usually are not bothered by deer or rabbits.
