A compact Foxglove with large, strawberry pink blooms. Foxglove ‘Summer King’ is a cross of Digitalis grandiflora, a yellow Foxglove and Digitalis purpurea, a pink form. The blend produces strawberry pink blooms with a yellow flush. Flowers will grow true from seed.

Foxglove ‘Summer King’ holds a prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit. Commonly known as Strawberry Foxglove.

Foxglove blooms start to open at the bottom of the stalks and gradually move upward providing a long show of fantastic colour. This large showy plant is a striking addition to any garden. Digitalis look best grouped toward the back of a bed, where their tall blossoms add colour.

Plant Foxgloves into well drained soil and keep moist in active growth. The flowers of Foxgloves are produced on a tall spike and are tubular. The individual flowers are about the size and shape of a thimble. The blooms are suitable for cutting.
