Design Tips

Delphinium flowers exhibit a unique blooming pattern, opening from the bottom of the stem to the top. Therefore, when designing with Delphinium, it is advisable to choose a bunch with a few inches of closed flowers at the top of the stem to ensure a gradual and balanced opening. Delphinium is well-suited for creating airy and casual garden arrangements. Its delicate spikes make it an excellent choice as a line flower, lending bouquets and arrangements a distinctive Victorian look.

Whether used in vases or floral foam, it's important to note that floral foam may slightly reduce the vase life of Delphinium. To maximize their longevity, ensure the stems are cut and well-hydrated before inserting them into a vase or foam. Hydrating the flowers overnight before incorporating them into design work is recommended for optimal results.
