A contemporary take on the classic white Foxglove, the large, pure-white flowers of 'Camelot White' are prettily speckled in the throat and held evenly all around strong, well-filled spikes. The impact is impressive from any angle. Remove the main spike as it fades for a flurry of new blooms that are especially good for cutting. Camelot hybrids are selected for their spectacular flowering and uniformity of height.
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.
