(Digitalis hybrida)
EXCLUSIVE - Enjoy exceptional garden performance with this new hybrid from Great Britain. Freckled Rose Princess blooms twice as long as any other foxglove variety. The plants form handsome rosettes of leaves with 3 to 3 1/2 foot tall sturdy spires of densely packed, rich raspberry-rose flowers with speckled throats. Hummingbirds love to visit these deer resistant gorgeous tall stalks of dangling bell blossoms and they make striking bouquets to enjoy indoors. Caution: foxgloves are toxic if eaten.

START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds as thinly as possible in a container of seed starting mix. Cover 1/8 inch deep with mix, keep moist and between 60-70°F (16-21°C). Provide a strong light source until the seedlings are ready to plant into the garden. Feed every 2 weeks with half-strength fertilizer. Once seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant 2 to 3 inches apart into a deeper container or individual pots so root systems have room to develop. When plants are 3 to 4 inches tall, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant out in well-drained soil. Thin or transplant seedlings 18 inches apart so the plants have enough elbow room.

 

GROWING NOTES

Deer resistant Foxgloves do well in dappled sunlight all day or full morning sun. They appreciate rich fertile soil and consistent moisture. In mild summer areas, they can handle full sun all day. Cut the rose-colored spires of bloom often for lavish bouquets. Encourage repeat bloom and flowering side shoots by cutting spent flower stalks at plant bases. Hummingbirds love to visit foxgloves too! These perennial plants will bloom their first year from seed sown in very early spring. Seed sown midsummer to early fall will overwinter to bloom the following spring.
