We HEART Foxgloves!
Cottage garden ICONS for a reason!

Name an iconic cottage garden classic that gets your gardener's heart pumping ... we'll go first. Old-fashioned and hardy "Foxgloves" are essential for any sun to part-shady garden needing color, height and movement (and that's like, everyone, right?).

Rising up from lush basal rosettes, cascading multitudes of finger-shaped (hence the Latin name Digitalis) blooms stud tall, sturdy spires to 30". What a sight! When they start blooming in our sample pots and demo gardens in Spring everyone wants one – but, here's the secret: you gotta plant them early if you want to enjoy flowers this year!

Pretty much a cinch to grow – just give them rich soil, average water (don't let them dry out) and sun to part shade (hotter areas) for superior performance. A top-dressing of compost boosts bloom!

Excellent pollinator plants, hummingbirds love them and you can often find bumblebees with their rumps poking out of the little tubes as they forage for the tasty nectar. Adorable!


Digitalis purpurea 'Camelot Rose' and 'Camelot Lavender' bloom their first year!

Hardy to USDA zone 5, they're deer/rabbit/snail/slug resistant. The leaves are the source of many heart medications and all parts are toxic, so don't eat it! Deadhead spent flower spikes to extend bloom. Our "Foxgloves" are biennials or short-lived perennials but self-sow reliably, so you'll never be without!

We were thrilled with how fast these lovely new hybrid "Foxgloves" bloomed – in a month or two after planting depending on weather! Romantic, nodding soft apricot-peach flowers on multiple 24-30" spikes bring effortless charm to containers, along a path or in the border.

Another fast-to-grow and bloom variety – rich raspberry-cerise blooms appear on tall spikes 3-4' tall just 1-2 months after planting! Then cut back for round 2! Flowers are horizontally held, the better to see their cute spotted throats. Self-sows reliably, but they are F-1 Hybrids and may not come true from seed.

The newest addition to our collection of fine "Foxgloves", this subtle beauty produces an endless array of slightly down-turned, alabaster white tubular flowers, each with a generous speckling of plum spots. Equally happy in a container or the border garden, it tops out at a manageable 2' tall.

Just like ‘Camelot Rose’, this beauty blooms soon after planting! Extra plentiful bloom spikes on this variety followed by more in year 2. Lovely maroon spotted 2” lavender flowers face outward and completely encircle the stems. Wow! Big leaved foliar mound to 2’ across. Enchanting cut flowers. To 3-4’ tall.

A thrilling focal point for your cottage garden! This fab “Foxglove” comes true from seed. Long lasting 3-4’ spikes of maroon-throated, ginormous (.75”-1.5” long) white bells open from the bottom up. Deadhead to encourage more blooms. Gorgeous cut flowers!
