Digitalis purpurea ‘Sugar Plum’


USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.190.390

This unique selection of Foxglove is described as a "bright pink version of D. ‘Pam’s Choice'". In early summer, tall spikes of pink bells appear, each heavily spotted inside with dark purple. 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. These perform best in rich, moist soil. Allow plants to form seeds, 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. Plants may need to be staked. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
