A cream, splotched crimson foxglove that flowers within months of sowing and then flowers for about six months at a stretch, three times longer than the usual foxglove (and also in its second year too!)
Great in the garden or a vase, this adds a cottage-style softness to your home. With nectar-filled flowers all the way up the stem, a foxglove is like a high rise block of delicious cafes full of fantastic food for pollinators.
Please note: This is harmful if eaten.
They self seed freely but many will revert to the wild colour form. May need staking. Remove the first flower spike early to encourage more 'prince' flowers from the base. Caution: All parts of the plant are highly toxic if ingested.
