Digitalis (Foxglove) Dalmation Collection


THE NAME FOXGLOVE is said to have arisen from a story about playful fairies, wanting to help the wily foxes. They slipped a foxglove over each paw and ever since, the fox has had the attribute of stealth. They even left their little fairy fingerprints on the blooms in the
form of tiny spots as proof.
Humans admire them today for their gorgeous, bell-shaped flowers which appear on long tall spikes, making an impressive statement in the garden during late spring and summer. Wonderful drifts of vertical spires create interest in the border by adding a third dimension. Excellent for cutting too – lasting 7-10 days in a vase, although you may not wish to deprive the passing wildlife of a nectar-rich feast. Deadhead as each flower is spent to encourage more flowers and promote seed production for self-seeding in the second year.

A unique collection bred to flower in the first year. Deadhead spent blooms in the first year to encourage a second year of flowers. Height 50cm (20"). Spread 40cm (16")

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
