The Strawberry Foxglove presents its 2" long, rose-pink flowers in dense spikes above attractive, deep-green leaves in early summer. It makes a striking vertical accent. Plants are short-lived; dividing them after blooms seems to help prolong their lives.
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.
