Product Details

Product Details

Rosy pink flowers encircle the tall, straight stems of this delectable Foxglove. The individual bell-shaped blooms of 'Candy Mountain' face upwards, showing charming speckled throats irresistible to hummingbirds and gardeners alike. These large flower spikes are supported by thick stems that defy wind and rain.

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.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Jim Webb from Sandy Hook CT

Planted this last year, purchased from the shop in CT. Did not come back this spring (yet). Both plants are looking to be a pile of dead leaves. When it was live last summer it was very pretty.

Exceptional plants

A viewer from Massachusetts

I bought 3 Digitalis purpurea 'Candy Mountain' plants in the Spring of 2016. A few months later, they produced the most beautiful flowers. Much to my surprise, they bloomed again this year even more beautiful than last.

I planted 3 of these last fall. I live in Chicago, today is June 7 and they all have beautiful flowers already, in their first season. Very impressed.

These are biennials. The first season I planted them, they grew bushy leaves. The second season, each plant sent up 1-2 giant stalks of flowers - each bud is magnificent and the colors are so beautiful! They are a show stopper! Despite high winds and thunder storms, they did not topple. They are vigorous and hardy. I plan to buy many more! Enjoy!

Grow Digitalis in soil enriched with organic matter. Afternoon shade is required in the South and warm inland areas of the West. Remove spent flower spikes to promote rebloom; but leave a few on D. purpurea varieties, which are biennials, to allow them to self-sow. Foliage tends to be evergreen; do not cut back in fall. Prune off winter-damaged leaves in spring.
