The Excelsior Foxglove Mixture

Digitalis purpurea. A classic element in cottage garden designs, our traditional mixture yields tall, handsome spires of tubular, bell-shaped flowers in a pastel rainbow of soft red, rosy-purple, pink and cream. Humans, bees and beneficial insects all adore them. Take care, it is poisonous, so be aware when planting near curious children and pets, and throw felled foliage and spent flowers away; do not add them to your compost pile. Height: 4' to 5'. Biennial. HZ: 4-10.

  • Information
  • Digitalis. A cottage garden favorite from yesteryear, the stately yet whimsical Foxglove adds a charming old-world beauty to summer gardens. A tall, self-seeding biennial perfect for the back of gardens or tall structural clusters, Digitalis benefits from periodic dead-heading, for which you will be rewarded with productive side shoots and a second bloom. Preferring a bit of protection from full day, direct sunlight, Digitalis may be started indoors ten weeks prior to transplanting out into the garden two weeks before the last spring frost date. It prefers rich, well-draining soil with consistent watering and a light covering of mulch. An excellent cut flower, Digitalis may surprise you with new clusters in subsequent years as the wind or birds carry its prolific seed through the garden. Bee friendly. Deer resistant. Biennial. Hardiness zones: 4-10. Spring to summer flowering.

    Average seed life: 2 years.
