Digitalis purpurea ‘Foxy’


Dwarf Foxglove

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.190.050


Often described as being “stately” when in bloom, Foxgloves produce enormous spires of large, dangling bells. Plants form a low rosette of coarse, hairy leaves in the first year, bursting into flower the second spring, then setting seed and usually dying. This compact selection produces flowers in a range of soft pastel shades, from cream to pink and rose. These perform best in a rich, moist soil. Allow plants to form seed, and they will often self-sow to produce future generations. New plants that form can be easily moved in their first season, while still small. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
