Description

A lovely cream foxglove that makes a beautiful cutflower and garden plant. We line the drive with these at Perch Hill to flower for May and through much of the summer. Bees and butterflies love them.

Foxgloves make some of the very best cottage garden early summer garden plants and cut flowers. If you pick the king flower – the main spire, you create lots of prince flowers and the plants will then go on flowering for longer.

Please note: This is Toxic if eaten.

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.
