Buy Digitalis purpurea 'Dalmatian White' (Dalmatian Series) foxglove: An early-flowering bee magnet

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


  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    You wont be disappointed with this new foxglove if you like to see immediate results, as it will nearly always flower in its first year. The pure-white flowers that form on the upright branching stems, have a pretty freckling of plum coloured markings in their throat, and if cut back promptly, there may well be a second flush of flowers later in the year.

  • 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 5-7 cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the plant in early spring.

    These plants are mainly short-lived perennials, although if happy they will produce plenty of new sideshoots and self-seed freely.

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten
