First to Bloom, and the Rich Purple Color Is to Die For!
• Improved to Have Even More Flowers!
• Compact Habit Lets it Fit in Anywhere
• First of the Foxgloves to Start Blooming
Rich Purple Tones on Flowers More Numerous than Ever!
Upright spires are covered with an amazing abundance of large, richly colored blooms of lilac purple. The blooms surround the whole stem, not just one side, and they face outward, the better to show off the distinctive maroon spots circled in white that decorate their throats. One of the best plants to give your yard a vertical accent to contrast with all the rounded, mounding plants (lovely though they are!) that are popular today!
You’ll Have More blooms and They’ll Start Earlier
This new, improved version of the popular Dalmatian Foxgloves is extra vigorous! That translates to growing faster so it starts blooming faster, so you get to enjoy their flowers earlier that with any other Foxglove. It also means the stems are more numerous and hold an amazing abundance of blooms – even more than before it was ‘improved’!
Neat and Compact, so It Needs No Staking
Only 2 to 2½ feet tall and 1½ feet wide, with stout stems springing up from a neat mound of basal foliage, this Foxglove needs no staking! Its compact size also lets you grow it where older, bigger Foxgloves would never do, so you can enjoy it in the middle of your flowers, rather than relegating it to the back of the bed. Hummingbirds adore Foxgloves, so you will have them humming around your yard when you plant this beauty.
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, and is lovely growing along a fence. It tends to be biennial, so let the seeds fall to ensure future generations. Unattractive to deer and rabbits!
