Digitalis – Candy Mountain Foxglove
A rare first! Candy Mountain Foxglove, Digitalis, is the first foxglove ever to have upward-facing flowers instead of the usual downward-facing ones. With this new angle, you can easily see the beautifully speckled throats of these rose pink blossoms. They are produced on very strong, strictly upright stems in early summer. This variety is a biennial, the first year it puts out foliage, the second year it flowers. Plants will reseed for years of blossoms.
Digitalis forms large rosettes of downy, green, oblong leaves from which numerous flower spikes emerge. It looks especially nice when planted along fences, at the wood’s edge, or in large containers. Deer and rabbit resistant. Poisonous.
Foxglove are ideal for cottage gardens, cutting gardens, beds and pollinator gardens.
Plant in full sun to part shade.
