Item #:
Pot Size: full quart


Plant Description

This first year flowering perennial foxglove received high acclaim in German trials because of its strong growth habit and its degree and intensity of flowering. The flowers of the Dalmatian mix range from deep lavender purple to peach to white with heavily spotted maroon throats, in early summer on 2 to 3 foot stalks. Plants make 1-foot wide evergreen clumps that are deer and rabbit resistant. Plant this gorgeous foxglove in full sun or light shade and average soil with average moisture. It would be great along a fence, in the middle of the perennial garden, or along a wood’s edge. A great combination might include shasta daisy, phlox ‘David’, culvers root, and ‘John Clayton’ honeysuckle.
