Digitalis purpurea | Dalmation PeachRegular price $12.00 Save $-12.00
A simply stunning coloured Foxglove with soft peachy apricot tubular blooms delicately spotted with yellow cream markings in the throat.
Foxgloves prefers well drained fertile soil but are tolerant of most conditions. Site in partial shade - Foxgloves do like some sun. The Dalmation series of foxgloves flower in their first year so no need to have to wait for this gorgeous plant to flower.
An excellent cut flower and one that is heavily favoured by flower farmers and florists. The trick to getting the longest vase life from foxglove is to cut the stems before the bees get to them! When the flowers are pollinated, they drop from the stems, so be sure to pick them early when just a few flowers are open. Expect a vase life of 6-8 days if flower preservative is used- see our blog post about extending the life of your cut flowers here. An excellent addition to bouquets and wedding work, this salmony beauty is a must-have in any cutting garden. While most foxgloves are biennials, this new hybrid flowers the first year from an early sowing of seed and will also produce the second year if left in place.
