When Grace at Five Forks Farm says "I want belladona, and I want the one Mandy at 3 Porch Farm grows" I of course text Mandy. It turns out this is Cliveden Beauty! Hardy to zone 5 (maybe colder), this clear sky blue Delphinum is much airier than the hybrid types. It can reach 4' on branched stems. If Grace and Mandy like it, I better try it too.
New for 2018, Blue Donna, a rich electric blue, and Casablanca, a pure white.
$0.34 per plug grown in a 128 cell tray, billed as 125
9 week lead time.
