This is the sixth year for this plant. It starts growing as soon as the snow disappears in the Spring. It get slightly larger each year. The flowering stalks are hollow and winds usually break them. I only have this one plant.

Thats very impressive Durgan, we rarely see that sort of display in Australia. delphiniums don't seem well suited to Australian conditions.

We can grow them as annuals, but they are never as strong and beautiful as your specimen.
