Description

Delicate ivory to primrose spikes of bell flowers. A perennial foxglove, which is the perfect companion to Solomon Seal in a shaded or partly shaded bed. We have this in a glade around our lawn and love it more and more every year.

Care Tips

Remove the first flower spike early to encourage more 'prince' flowers from the base. May require protection from severe frost. Caution: All parts of the plant are highly toxic if ingested.
