    Maintenance Notes: 

    According to the Humane Society of American Delphinium plants especially the sprouts can be toxic to pets. This is means that the plants are generally identified as having the capability for producing a toxic reaction.

    Deadhead to extend blooming. Often short lived perennial or treated as an annual. After the plant has finished blooming and side shoots start to appear in late spring or early summer is the best time to dig and divide your Delphinium.
