Unique new foxglove hybrids
Flower continuously for up to six months!
Exotic shades and excellent drought resistance
The Digitalis Illumination Series, from our very own breeding programme, has changed the world of foxgloves - taking them from a wiry, brief-blooming biennial wildflower to a handsome, tidy yet shrubby perennial with true garden performance.
Parentage from the little-known Isoplexis (Canary Island Foxglove) gives Digitalis 'Illumination Cherry Brandy' its fabulous exotic colouring and perennial habit. Also known as Digitalis 'Illumination Ruby Slippers', this beautiful foxglove produces multiple spires of open-mouthed blooms on short stocky plants that are just as at home in a patio pot as a cottage garden border scheme. Unlike most foxgloves which are generally biennial, this half-hardy perennial is semi-evergreen when planted in a sheltered and well drained position. Being completely sterile, it won't set seed, making it incredibly long flowering. As the main flower spike fades, multiple sideshoots spring up to offer up to six months of vivid floral colour. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18")
