Digitalis ferruginea | Rusty FoxgloveRegular price $12.00 Save $-12.00
A striking foxglove to have in the garden to add colour and architectural height to the border. Digitalise ferruginea - Rusty Foxglove is a bienniel or short lived perennial that has spikes of attractive funnel shaped creamy to pale golden brown flowers that have rusty coloured contrasting veins in the interior. Flowering from late spring to early summer the spires of flowers rise from a basal rosette of dark green leaves. This plant will self sow so will naturalise in the garden creating little colonies of plants.
Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society this lovely foxglove is always featured in English gardening magazines and for good reason. Performs best in full sun but will cope with some shade and of course it will self sow freely if it likes its position. A perfect choice for a woodland garden and cottage garden as well as general garden bed and borders and looks best planted in groups of 3-4 plants.
After flowering cut back the central flower spike which will encourage side shoots.
Please note as with all Foxgloves the leaves are highly toxic if eaten
