It is a tall, elegant plant that can reach a height of 4-6 feet and a width of 2-3 feet. The plant produces multiple spikes of densely-packed, dark blue flowers with dark bee-like centers that rise above a bushy mound of deeply lobed, green leaves. The flowers are shaped like a spur, giving them their distinctive look.

    The blooming season of DELPHINIUM elatum 'Dark Blue/Dark Bee' typically begins in late spring or early summer and can last for several weeks.

It thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers moist, well-drained soil. Adequate water is essential for this plant, especially during hot and dry periods.
