Bring some elegance to your garden with this exquisite delphinium. New Millennium™ Pink Punch has deep pink, frilled flowers with dark purple centers called bees. It has beautiful green leaves that are deeply lobed. The flowers rise majestically, on strong stems, to a height of 36-60 inches. These long bloomers attract butterflies and hummingbirds from early summer to fall.

New Millennium™ delphiniums have improved tolerance of heat and humidity, therefore they fare better in warmer climates than the Pacific hybrids. Hybridized in New Zealand, they are long lived and cold hardy. Neither deer nor rabbits like to eat them. Use these beauties in mass plantings or in small groups. Place them in the background of a perennial bed. They are stunning as a specimen or focal point – make them a ‘thriller’ in a combination container. Cut fresh, or dried, the flowers enhance bouquets.

New Millennium Pink Punch Larkspur Care

Plant them in a well-drained site where there is some shelter from strong winds. Dig a hole twice the diameter of the container and deep enough for the top of the root ball to be level with the soil. The delphinium may require staking – do this early in the growing season to prevent damage to the root system. For that reason, place stakes well away from the plant. A triangle of three stakes with two rows of string around them works well. (Never attach string to the flower stem.) They like evenly moist soil and should not be allowed to dry out. Water them every 7-10 days in dry weather. Delphiniums prefer fertile soil with an alkaline or neutral pH. They are heavy feeders so give them a balanced, liquid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks. Grow them in either a full sun or mostly sunny location.

Remove faded flowers so the plant does not expend energy on seed production, although you may want to allow some self-seeding for next year. If you cut back lanky or spent stems to one half, you will force new growth from the base. When growing them in a container you may use a potting mix that is formulated for roses. Add a top dressing of slow-release fertilizer that is high in nitrogen. Move the container to a sheltered spot for over-wintering. Note that delphiniums are toxic to humans and animals.

New Millennium Pink Punch Larkspur Spacing

In the landscape place the plants 18-24 inches apart. For container growing, use an 8-10-inch pot or try a wooden half-barrel. The container must be large enough for root development.

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. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

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.
