Foxglove - 2 litres
Digitalis 'Foxtrot' is a recently introduced variety of the Orchid foxglove, with spires of exotic-looking soft lilac-pink flowers divided into slender, flared petals, splashed and spotted deep carmine-red, in early and midsummer. Delightful in mixed and herbaceous borders and informal cottage garden-type plantings. Lovely as a cut flower. Favoured by bees. Height and spread 1.2m by 45cm.
Thrives in most soils other than boggy or very dry, preferably in light dappled shade. Inclined to be short-lived - cut down after flowering to promote rosette of foliage to flower again the following year.
