Delphinium Fenella
Delphinium is a traditional, old variety producing tall spikes of purple-tinged, gentian-blue flowers with black eyes.

Hummingbirds love delphinium, which blooms in early summer. Height for these perennials can average anywhere from 2 to 8 feet tall, depending on variety. Delphinium requires rich soil, and areas with relatively cool summers.
