Digitalis Polkadot Pippa

Digitalis Polkadot Pippa

We're pleased to offer this long-blooming Foxglove in the Polkadot series. Because 'Polkadot Pippa' is a sterile hybrid that doesn't set seed, all its energy goes into flowering! In our display garden, the show continued from June through August. These 3ft spikes in delicious shades of deep rose and apricot promise to be a gardener's favorite summertime treat. Hummingbirds love them, too, but deer do not.

The genus Digitalis comes from southern Europe and has some 20 species, mostly perennials. They grow either in sun or partial shade, which makes them ideal plants for woodland gardens. Some are biennial, and even the perennial forms tend to be short-lived, but their extravagant flowering more than compensates for this, and many will reseed themselves. Foxgloves are of easy culture and make excellent cut flowers if picked when the blooms are half open. But their real strength is as dramatic and richly colored vertical accents, a look that is impossible to duplicate with another genus.
