I've read that alot of Delphiniums can be short lived.......but not this one! I've had it for 10+ years and it's still growing well. Not as big as it once was, but it's never been divided.
I love it! It's the first Delphinium I ever tried and the only one I've ever been able to keep alive, all others have died.
Highly recommended!!!

June 9 2009: I've had this plant going on 13 years now and it's better then ever! Last year we moved so I brought it with me and planted it in a new full sun location and this year it's looking better then ever :)
