DESCRIPTION: This is a unique selection of Foxglove, bearing tall spikes of glowing rose-pink bells, each with darker freckles on the inside, over a rosette of downy green leaves. Unlike other varieties, the individual flowers face upward so the effect is very colourful and showy. Attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Excellent in large containers. Acts as a biennial, flowering in the second year then setting seed and dying. These perform best in a rich, moist soil. Allow plants to form seed in the second year and they may self-sow to produce future generations. New seedlings that appear can be easily moved in their first season, while still small. Plants may need to be staked. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
Available in 1 gallon pots
