Digitalis purpurea ‘Dalmatian Purple’

Foxglove
USDA Zone: 4-9
Plant number: 1.190.310

This is a unique selection of Foxglove, flowering well even the first year. It forms a low rosette of green leaves, with tall spikes of deep lavender-purple bells, each spotted inside with maroon purple. Deadhead first-year blooms by trimming back the spent flower stems to base of the plant, to encourage overwintering and a second year of bloom. These perform best in a rich, moist soil. Allow plants to form seed in the second year and they may self-sow to produce future generations. New seedlings that appear can be easily moved in their first season, while still small. Plants may need to be staked. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
