"Foxgloves" are a wonderful bunch of plants for brilliant color in the garden. The problem is, most of them are biennials or very short lived perennials at best. Here's a "Foxglove" that's not only perennial, but self sows itself into a colossal colony of continual color. I've been growing Digitalis lutea for many years now and it's never disappointed me. The long lasting, bright yellow blooms open from the bottom up over a long period of time in early Summer and make great cut flowers. Almost overnight, from a rosette of soft, velvety leaves, multiple 12" - 24" stems arise with dark green foliage and dozens of flower buds.
Digitalis lutea seems to be equally happy in full sun or full shade, although they tend to be a bit sturdier with more sun.
Not only that, but they're really tough plants! They've survived in pots to 9 degrees with no snow cover, in pots!!! And.........the deer, rabbits, chipmunks etc don't pay any attention to them.
There's some very interesting information about the genus Digitalis on Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digitalis and I have several other species that I'm growing and will have available to share with you soon.
In the meantime, I have a nice stash of Digitalis lutea to share with you now. What you'll receive are bareroot, flowering size 3 year old plants out of 2" pots, with their roots wrapped in long fibered, unmilled sphagnum moss. This material is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and a very useful material to recycle. If you'd rather have them arrive in their pots, please add $1.95 per plant to cover the extra cost of shipping.
7 for $ 35.00 delivered ($5.00 ea)
Larger quantities at even lower prices upon request.
