    One of the new breed of foxgloves, 'Firebird' was voted runner up in the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year competition in 2019, it has glossy, dark green foliage, and in summer, showy flowerspikes, which are a rich blend of apricot, pink and gold. Said to be hardy down to -5C, it's easy to mix, and it also offers architectural interest.
