No cottage garden would be complete without a towering foxglove or two and this pure white variety, Foxglove purpurea 'Alba' will bring a touch of calm to a busy, colourful border during early summer. These all spires of snow white blooms will brighten dappled shade in woodland areas and shady borders, where its pale flowers appear luminescent as they reflect the light when dusk falls. This striking flower will prove to be a magnet for bees and other pollinating insects and flower arrangers will also make a beeline for these eye catching tall flowers. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes. Toxic if eaten. Plant Foxgloves out in sun or dappled shade on any fertile, well drained soil. Digitalis will grow well in most soils except for waterlogged or particularly dry conditions. Incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil prior to planting. Water well to settle the soil.
Water foxglove plants regularly until fully established. Foxgloves self-seed freely. If seedlings are not wanted, deadhead stems of foxglove flowers as the blooms fade. In autumn, cut back old stems to encourage plenty of new side shoots.
