Digitalis Goldcrest

Hybrid Foxglove

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.190.540

( =‘Waldigone’) An interesting British introduction, this hybrid Foxglove is sterile so it flowers for many weeks, beginning in midsummer. It forms a low rosette of dark green leaves, bearing taller stems that hold spikes of dangling bells. Blooms are an intriguing peachy-yellow tone, marked with maroon-red spots. Stems are good and strong for cutting. Bred by David Tristram of Walburton Nurseries in the UK. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
