Digitalis purpurea ‘Camelot Rose’


Foxglove

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.190.070


This is a unique selection of Foxglove, bearing tall spikes of glowing rose-pink bells, each spotted inside with maroon purple. Unlike other types, ‘Camelot’ Foxgloves flower in both the first and second year before eventually setting seed and dying. Deadhead first-year blooms to encourage overwintering. These perform best in a rich, moist soil. Allow plants to form seed in the second year and they may self-sow to produce future generations. New seedlings that appear can be easily moved in their first season, while still small. Plants may need to be staked. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
