Digitalis – Pink Panther Foxglove
Breeding Breakthrough – All Summer Blooming Perennial Foxglove
Here’s a superior selection of Foxglove that outperforms most others. As magnificent and fun as the character Pink Panther, this Foxglove, Digitalis, entertains us with brilliant tall spikes of bubblegum pink bells from spring through late summer. Its wonderful flowers stay upright and don’t flop like other varieties. Another outstanding quality — it comes back reliably, even after a harsh winter. Pink Panther Foxglove is a true perennial hybrid foxglove that comes back year after year instead of biennially, like other foxgloves. Spectacular in the garden and in containers. Deer and rabbit don’t touch it. Poisonous if eaten.
A top performer, Pink Panther Foxglove stays in bloom for months. Here at Sugar Creek it started in late spring and continued on and on throughout summer. Pink Panther Foxglove makes an ideal choice for cottage gardens, cutting gardens, beds and pollinator gardens. Try it in the center of your mixed containers for a super thriller.
Plant in full sun to part shade. Add compost or other organic matter when planting. Adding a starter fertilizer at planting will get plants off to a fast start. Keep consistently watered, especially when plants are setting up buds and blooming.
