Description

A lovely soft pink foxglove which flowers at the same time and looks beautiful with peonies in June. This is one of my absolute favourite plants. Bees and butterflies love them too.

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 harmful 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.
