Unavailable in 2018
Digitalis grandiflora (Ambigua)
(What's my zone?)Perennial
Cultivar Notes - 'Foxglove'
this species bears butter-yellow flowers spattered with mahogany-brown inside on shorter, chubby spikes. These flowers appear in pendulous clusters on one-sided racemes and contain a sweet nectar that hummingbirds find irresistable.
Genus Notes - Digitalis
Foxgloves have been grown and admired for centuries, and it's hard to imagine a cottage garden or perennial border without their tall spikes of colorful, fingerlike flowers.
Digitalis forms large rosettes of downy, green, oblong leaves from which numerous flower spikes emerge. It looks especially nice when planted along fences, at the wood's edge, or in large containers.
Most are biennial but often reseed themselves in the garden. They bloom early summer and grow best in partial shade in well-drained soil.
