The tall spires of Foxglove ‘Excelsior Hybrids’ produce delicate bell-shaped flowers with heavily spotted throats in pastel shades of mauve, pink, yellow or white. The uniform spikes with evenly spaced flowers create a spectacular presence at the back of borders and make handsome cut flowers. This short-lived, perennial is best known for its statuesque presence in cottage gardens and woodlands where it attracts wildlife to its nectar rich blooms. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Flowering Months
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.
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.
