If I had to choose three flowers for a lightly shady spot it would be a mix of these foxglove spires, perhaps with the odd allium sphere scattered through. Their twists and turns, their fairy thimbles, their pollen and nectar-rich flowers combine to make them just THE BEST!This collection contains 5 jumbo seedlings each of:
- Digitalis purpurea 'Pam's Choice'
- Digitalis purpurea 'Sutton's Apricot'
- Digitalis purpurea f. albiflora
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.
