A foxglove relation with so much more substance to it, but still the elegant, nectar-filled spires, in a beautiful soft orange. This shot is taken in our oast garden where this has become one of our favourite, long-season flowers.
Plant in large containers of loam-based compost which can be moved indoors for winter or plant in sheltered borders outside in mild, southerly gardens.
