Foxglove Foxlight ‘Ruby Glow’ is an exciting breeding breakthrough. It is a crossing of Isoplexis (in the same genus – Scrophulariaceae) with Digitalis to come up with a whole new plant! Colloquially known as Digiplexis, it is most definitely garden worthy.
The bright colours make it a stand out. The florets are outward facing which allows you to see right in and appreciate the intricate spotting. The mix of raspberry and peach is unquestionably eye catching.
Foxlight Foxgloves are infertile, so bloom for an extensive period. They are propagated vegetatively so you are assured they will flower true to type.
Foxlight Foxgloves have low mounding green foliage and tall, strong spikes. They make excellent cut flowers.
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.
Foxgloves look best grouped toward the middle or back of a bed, where their tall blossoms add colour. Plant Foxgloves into well drained soil and keep moist in active growth.
