Additional Information

Rare and unusual, native to China. The tubular flowers bear a resemblance to Digitalis. Spikes of dangling, bell-shaped, blossoms poke up from scalloped, glossy green leaves. Unlike traditional foxgloves, Chinese foxglove petals of the bell lip flare open and outward.They will still flower quite well in shade and can even handle dry shade. In full sun, they will need extra water during hot spells.They root will rot in soil that remains wet for extended periods. Poorly draining soil can also cause problems during the colder winter months.

"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"
