Digitalis purpurea 'Excelsior Group' (foxglove)

Digitalis purpurea ‘Excelsior Group’ (foxglove) was £7.49 now £6.99
Position:full sun to partial shade Soil: moist, humus-rich soil Rate of growth: average to fast-growing Flowering period: May to July Flower colour: purple, pink, creamy-yellow or white Hardiness: fully hardy Tall spires of large, well-spaced, tubular flowers in soft shades of purple, pink, creamy-yellow or white, each one with throats spotted maroon or purple appear from May to July. These pastel-coloured foxgloves are perfect for the back of a large cottage-style border. Although short-lived, given the right conditions they will perpetuate by self-seeding. 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. These plants are mainly biennial, although they will produce plenty of new sideshoots and self-seed freely.
