This pretty little Foxglove which is also known as fairy thimbles or a Straw Foxglove is quite a different species to the more traditional variety.  It is reliably perennial and bears delicate 2cm pale creamy lemon tubular flowers down one side of its flower stem.  Lutea is tolerant of a wide range of conditions but thrives best in a partially shaded position but does not like wet feet, so good drainage is important, although when it is established it is pretty drought tolerant.  Often referred to as the Small Yellow Foxglove it is an elegant plant and will be a beautiful contender for a shaded area. Also makes a great cut flower that is loved by bees.

As with all foxgloves, we recommend handling them when wearing gloves given the digitalin content which is used in cardiac medicine. Folklore tales say that the fairy folk gave the fox the flowers to put on its paws whilst hunting, hence the name Foxglove!

A pretty addition to a cottage garden and looks lovely with Hellebores and lovely in an informal garden, woodland and cottage garden

We have a wonderful range of Foxgloves with many not often seen so if you love them as much as we do you will be sure to find some that you love that you have not seen before.

Please note that on occasion Aramex may deem an area to be rural where other companies may not, this unfortunately is outside of our control as Aramex are the preferred courier for live plants, as other couriers will not transport them.
