Black Eyed Angels Delphinium is a celebrated summer-blooming perennial known for its stately cloud of white flowers held on tall, sturdy spikes. This tall plant reaches up to 5 feet high and features frilly white flowers with dark eyes. Large white blossoms have pollen-filled, black-center anthers, attracting plenty of hummingbirds and butterflies. The stems are completely covered in flowers for a stunning and beautiful display. This Delphinium blooms continuously from early summer through early fall. 

Feature Black Eyed Angels Delphiniums in beds and borders or create a memorable mass planting. They look delicate, but this variety is bred to stand up to heat and humidity while looking fresh all season long. The flowers give a landscape a cottage feel and make a fantastic foundation planting or a standalone focal point. Their sturdy stems easily support the towering blooms. Cut the stems to display in arrangements. Pollinators also love the stunning flowers, but deer and rabbits tend to leave Delphiniums alone. Grow this beauty as a perennial in zones 3 through 7.

Black Eyed Angels Delphinium Care

The Black Eyed Angels Delphinium is easy to maintain and does best in full to partial sun. Delphiniums love the sun and require plenty of natural sunlight to support blooming and a balanced structure. Find a location in your landscape that receives 5 - 8 hours of sunlight per day.  Plant Black Eyed Angels Hybrid Bee Delphiniums in well-draining, fertile soil that is slightly alkaline in pH (between 6.5 - 7.5). Water your Delphinium when the top few inches of the ground are dry. Aim to keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy, particularly in the heat of summer. 

Black Eyed Angels Hybrid Bee Delphiniums benefit from a monthly fertilization application during their growing season. Apply a balanced 10-10-10 water-soluble fertilizer monthly to help this plant put on height and set flowers.

Remove spent flowers to maintain a tidy look and encourage the Delphinium to push out more flowers; deadheading also prevents the plants from setting seed. This plant is an herbaceous perennial that will die after the weather turns cold. Cut plants close to the ground after the first hard frost, and remove dried foliage to help prevent disease. Put a layer of organic mulch over the roots before the first frost to help protect them from harsh winter weather.

Black Eyed Angels Delphinium Spacing

Black Eyed Angels Delphinium is a tall plant that will stand 36 to 60 inches high and 18 to 24 inches wide, so find a location that allows for their blooms to be in clear view. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart to create a dense wall of flowers for an impressive display. Allow about 20 inches between each Delphinium if planting in groups.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
