Buy Digitalis lutea foxglove: A diminutive yellow-flowering foxglove

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • 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

I am never disappointed when purchasing plants from Crocus


Planted in my garden with excellent results




Digitalis lutea


A very healthy plant when it arrived but it did not flower last summer. It has not flourished during the wet winter, however it has new shoots so I am hopeful. If it fails I will try again.




A plant to Love


I love this plant ... it lives happily in a semi shaded spot, underneath an Acer. Its a modest unassuming plant, but very close to me heart, as it never fails to please.

Hello, 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.

How to use those dreamy flower spires

There's one garden essential that brings a planting scheme to life and it's upright flower spikes that soar heavenwards. They add drama and perspective to all your other planting and, as they open from the bottom upwards, each spire offers a glorious co
