Multiple upright stems swathed with pretty, rosy pink bells – what is even better is that they are sterile, so will last twice as long, flowering continuously from spring to autumn.
This medium sized perennial grower flowers early and works well in gardens or pots. The plants are well branched so you can enjoy lots of flower spikes over the dark green foliage grows that grows low to the ground.
This showy plant is a striking addition to any garden and adds a nice element of vertical colour. The foliage grows in a thick rosette, below the blooms. Foxgloves, or digitalis look best grouped toward the middle or back of a bed, where the tall blossoms will brighten any spot. It is a vigorous, long blooming plant.
Foxglove blooms start to open at the bottom of the stalks and gradually move upward providing weeks of fantastic colour.
Plant Foxgloves into well drained soil, water in and keep moist in active growth. This short lived perennial, that will last two or three sensational seasons, even more.
Our tip – if you are keen to cut the flowers and want to get the best longevity, cut them in the morning, when the florets are one third to half open.
The individual flowers are about the size and shape of a thimble. Fairies are said to have sewn gloves for foxes from their petals.
