Hi Cynthia

So far mine are blue with white bees.  Overall, not much more spectacular than those I have, but I shall refrain judgement until they are in full bloom.

Penny in Halifax, N.S. who was hoping for some other colours - I have differnt shades of blue, pink and white.

 Which ones did you get???

Well let me see, I got dark blues with black bees, dark double blues, light
blue with a white bee, light mauve blue, and Terry sent me a freebie
package of blue mix.  (Can ya tell I like blue flowers LOL).

As soon as I got the seeds I started them under lights.  I do believe I had
close to 100% germination.  I've got several planted out in my front yard,
and another big batch that I'm going to leave in pots.  Depending on how
well they look, I may plant some in the Fall, but I think I'm going to
overwinter some in pots in case I lose all the ones I've planted.

I love delphiniums and I hope to have a spectacular show in my front yard
next year.
