A New and Exciting Color in an Old Fashioned Garden Favorite!
• Sets No Seed, So It Keeps Blooming for Months!
• Its Many Stems Bear an Amazing Amount of Flowers
• Very Vigorous, So It Lives for Years
Peachy Gold Flowers Brings a Whole New Look to Your Garden!
A new color for Foxgloves, distinctive and different! Honey-gold flowers have a dusting of rose on the outside and maroon speckles in the throat; when viewed from a distance, the colors blend into a rich peachy apricot that glows in the garden, especially in the late afternoon sunlight. The plant is neat and compact, with sturdy stems only 18 to 22 inches tall that stay upright with no staking.
Blooms from Midsummer through Early Fall – A Month Longer than Most Foxgloves!
Since this variety is sterile, it has the energy to keep producing those gorgeous blooms for months, starting in midsummer and continuing well into fall. It has a handsome, neat habit, and sends up an amazing number of stems from the basal rosette of foliage. This means you get to enjoy many times the flowers that an ordinary Foxglove will bear, for the more stems, the more flowers a plant will have!
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.
