Towers of tangerine to gold and rose florets that last the distance. It is a little more compact than other Digiplexis with a different Digitalis lineage.

Show stopping colour with impressive upright stems of bold blooms. Unlike most Foxgloves which come and go within six weeks, Illumination Foxgloves can flower for up to an incredible six months and they are multi branched so you are getting more flowers than ever. The iridescent flowers are self cleaning and endure over two seasons. Oh and the plant will last for many years.

Digiplexis look best grouped toward the middle or back of a bed, where their tall towers of blossoms add beautiful colour and vertical interest. In the Dandenongs they remain evergreen and low growing foliage rosettes are rather handsome. And they flowered from November to April.

Foxglove ‘Illumination Firecracker’ is an innovative cross between hardy Digitalis and a rare plant from the Canary Islands, Isoplexis canariensis, the cross has become known as Digiplexis. The resulting plant is strong growing with excellent resistance to rust and fungal spotting and boast plenty of blooms. They are semi evergreen, rather than biennial and the crown will last for many years.

Plant into well drained soil and keep moist in active growth. Remove spent flowers to encourage more blooms.
