Description

Copper flowers are IT and never more so than when they are a perennial foxglove which flowers in the sun or shade from mid-spring to midsummer, stuffed full of nectar, like a skyscraper of cafes, one on top of another, for butterflies and bees.

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.
