Digitalis obscura also known as the Sunset Foxglove is a shrubby perennial which has stems with traditional type nodding Foxglove flowers that are a shades of rusty brown through orange and yellow with red veins in the throat - very attractive!
Flowering from late spring and into mid summer this charming plant is a welcome addition to cottage gardens and looks particularly effective when it is planted in groups. If you cut back the main flower stem as the flowers fade you will encourage the growth of flowering side shoots.
As with all Foxgloves this variety is an excellent addition to the cutting garden.
The trick to getting longevity from them as cut flowers from Foxgloves is to cut the stems before the bees find them! Once the flowers are pollinated, the flowers will drop from the stems so you will need to harvest the flower stems early when just a few flowers are open. You can expect up to about 8 days if you use a flower preservative and you can read some of our tips for getting your cut flowers to last longer here
Like with most foxgloves, in ideal conditions this pretty little plant will self sow. Happy in full sun to partial shade in a well drained position.
