Our Camelot Series Mixture is a big leap forward in Foxgloves—the flowers are held horizontally so you can see right into their spotted throats. Plants are prolific in their first year, even more so in their second producing a mass of secondary spikes as the main show starts to fade. The Camelot series wowed visitors at the Chelsea Flower Show. Our mixture contains plants with rose, cream, lavender, and white flowers.
The genus Digitalis comes from southern Europe and has some 20 species, mostly perennials. They grow 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. Their extravagant flowering more than compensates for this however, and many will reseed themselves. Foxgloves are of easy culture and make excellent cut flowers if picked when the blooms are half open. Use them as dramatic and richly colored vertical accents, a look that is impossible to duplicate with another genus.
