Black Eyed Angels Delphinium Care

Water your Delphinium when the top few inches of the ground are dry. As a moderately hungry plant, the Black Eyed Angels Delphinium benefits from being fertilized. Apply a 5-12-5 NPK plant food in the early spring 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. This plant is an herbaceous perennial that will die after the weather turns cold. All of the growth can be cut back after the first frost.

Black Eyed Angels Delphinium is a tall plant that will stand 36 to 60 inches high and 18 to 24 inches wide. Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart to create a dense wall of flowers for an impressive display.
