Flowers of Unusually Bright Pink Come Back for Years!!
• Sets No Seed, So It Keeps Blooming for Months!
• Unusually Large Blooms are Most Vibrant Pink in Foxgloves!
• Very Vigorous, So It Lives for Years
This New, Bright Pink Foxglove Shines in the Garden
Unlike the subdued hues of most Foxgloves, the clear, bright pink of Polkadot Princess shines like a beacon in the garden! The blooms are larger than usual, too, and their bright color and tubular shape make them a magnet for hummingbirds. It grows into an elegant clump with numerous stems (which means numerous flowers!) and creates a most satisfying show in the garden. FYI: The ‘Polkadot’ in its name refers to the speckles in the throats of the blooms, and ‘Princess’ refers to their bright princess pink coloring.
Enjoy these Beauties Spring through Fall
The heaviest spate of bloom occurs in the spring and it goes on for weeks, creating an impressive show. Simply cut back the main stem after this first burst of bloom is done, and the plant will send up side shoots that keep the color going until early fall. Such a wealth of bloom is unprecedented in Foxgloves!
Sets No Seed, So All the Energy Goes into the Plant and Its Blooms
Foxgloves are garden classics, but they bloom for only a few weeks in spring, and then peter out altogether after a couple of seasons. However, this new hybrid from England sets no seed, so it uses all that energy in its blooms and in replenishing the vigor of the plant. This enables it to bloom for months, and to live longer than traditional Foxgloves, coming back for years to bring you enjoyment! No seed set also means you don’t have to deal with seedlings popping up in unexpected places.
Plant in a sunny to partly shaded spot with moist but well-drained soil add plenty of humus or compost to the soil when you plant to help both moisture retentiveness and good drainage. This plant is most effective when planted in a group of 3 or more in your yard, or growing along a fence.
