Description

This Digitalis has large, trumpet-shaped blooms in warm yellow and pink, with dark speckling in the throats. Sterile, it doesn’t bear seeds and therefore flowers continuously throughout summer. It’s perfect for growing in a mixed herbaceous border or as part of a container display.

Planting Conditions

Foxgloves grow best in rich soils that are moist, but well-drained and can be grown in sun or partial shade.

Watering & Feeding

During the first year water at least once a week during dry periods, decreasing to every other week once established.

General Care

Removing faded flower spikes during the season may encourage re-blooming, once the plant has completely finished flowering cut the flower spikes back to just above the leaves. Feed in spring with a balanced, slow release fertiliser. Although Foxgloves are short-lived they self-seed creating new plants each year.
