Digitalis ferruginea gigantea

£4.50

Digitalis ferruginea ‘Gigantea’ has softly colored, tan-yellow flowers with rusty-brown veins on the inside. It’s a tall, narrow plant like an exclamation point in the garden.¬†Rusty Foxglove grows well in part shade¬†and it’s not too picky about the soil. I have a patch growing in the shade in heavy clay – just about the worst conditions you can imagine and this species thrives there.

Product Description

This is a rather unusual but stunning perennial Foxglove, featuring tall, towering wands of honey-brown flowers in the summer months. Foliage is green, forming a large rosette at the ground in the first year, followed by flowers in the second. Performs well in a moist border, or in the woodland garden. Any seedlings that appear may be easily moved in early spring. May need to be staked.
