  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained, preferably alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: fast growing
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Slightly glossy rich green leaves form a basal clump, from which stout stems arise in early summer bearing small soft yellow trumpets that are attractive to pollinating insects. More reliably perennial than many other foxgloves, it makes a welcome addition to the woodland floor, where it will settle in nicely with ferns and other shade-lovers.

  • Garden care: Ensure that the soil is kept moist in summer. After flowering cut back the flowered spikes to encourage more sideshoots. Cut down to the ground after flowering. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-ro tted organic matter around the plant in early spring.

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten

  • Q:

    Can I just check that these will flower this year? I have been waiting for them to come available to plant by my woodland stream.
    Many thanks

      I'm afraid we can't guarantee they will as this is influenced by exterior factors, but I would say there is a very good chance that they will.
