Foxglove 'Dalmatian Peach'
The blooms are a gorgeous peach to apricot shade that fades gracefully with age. Inside the trumpet there are decorative orange polka dots. It holds the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit so you know it is garden worthy.
Dalmatian Foxgloves are early, have compact foliage, uniform branching and will flower with from seed in their first year. These F1 hybrids have excellent vigour and uniformity. Cut them back once they finish blooming and you can enjoy a second, smaller show.
Foxglove blooms start to open at the bottom of the stalks and gradually unfurl up the stem, providing you with weeks of fantastic colour.
They are hardy, short lived perennials that will set seed to collect future generations. The seedlings are easily moved and shared –offering such fantastic value! A crown will generally last two years and by then the seedlings will be taking charge as they flower in their first year from early sown seed.
These large, showy plants make a striking addition to any garden. Digitalis look best grouped toward the middle or back of a bed, where their tall florets will shine. Plant into well drained soil and keep them moist in active growth.
Foxgloves grow best in where the winters are cool and thrive in frosty locations.
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. Fairies are said to have sewn gloves for foxes from their petals, hence the common name. It is also said you can leave a message for the fairies by whispering to the morning dew on the flowers.
