Heavenly white floral bells with densely speckled throats of maroon-purple. Foxglove ‘Pam’s Choice’ holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit for its reliable garden performance.
This large, showy plant is a striking addition to any garden and adds a nice element of vertical colour. Foxgloves, or digitalis look best grouped toward the back of a bed, where their tall blossoms will brighten any spot.
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 sets viable seed which can be left to naturalise, or collected for sowing. They will flower from the seed in their second year.
The individual flowers are about the size and shape of a thimble. Fairies are said to have sewn gloves for foxes from their petals.
