I fell on this collection of foxgloves in our trial last summer, picking them and loving them jumbled in a jug inside and growing in the garden. The Dalmatian series is an F1 type, which produces consistent long-flowering, even in its first year.

If you remove the first year spent flower stems by trimming back to the base of the plant, this will aid overwintering and encourage a second year of bloom. Allow plants to form seed in the second year and they may self-sow to continue the cycle in your garden.
