Growing Recommendations - Volkerfrieden Blue Delphinium

Typically, the Volkerfrieden Blue Delphinium spreads by seeds and can be propagated by basal cuttings and division. For the floral industry, there are only a few select growers around the world that produce this type of flower for commercial use. It is often seen as a border perennial in a cottage or informal style of garden or in use as a cut flower on its own or in special floral arrangements. To cultivate this flower, it should be planted tin well-drained soil that can be chalky, sandy, or loamy. It also likes to grow in an area that receives full sun that can either be exposed or sheltered. It enjoys a liquid fertilizer during its growing season. It is important to deadhead this flower by cutting back the spent flower spikes until they are small, flowering side shoots. When it has completely withered in the autumn, then it is time to cut all growth back and down to the ground level. These must also be divided every three to four years.

When growing these, it is important to stake them for stability as they grow very tall. Sometimes, the Volkerfrieden Blue Delphinium can be vulnerable to powdery mildew, but this can be treated with sulfur. It may also suffer from crown rot or black botch of Delphinium. Pests that tend to be attracted to this flower include leaf-mining sawflies, caterpillars, snails and slugs all of which can be treated with pesticides, saw dust, or traps. Overall, this plant takes between two and five years to mature but does begin to bloom fairly early on its lifecycle.
