Blooms in the FIRST YEARwith a multitude of raspberry-cerise trumpets featuring cherry-dappled throats on strong upright stems to 4’ tall! And just you wait for the second year when it explodes with bigger, better & more awe-inspiring flowers before self-sowing & providing even more spikes for beaucoup bouquets! There is no flower more cottage-chic than Digitalis & this reliable bloomer is a great choice with its long bloom season (late Spring thru Summer) & ability to thrive in both dappled shade & full sun. Attracts much-coveted bees, butterflies, & hummingbirds to the garden. Blooms should be dead-headed the first year, but be sure to leave some the second year so it can reseed! Plant in Spring to ensure first year blooms. Provide regular compost for best show.
