Foxglove 'Alba' (Large Plant)

Digitalis purpurea, Digitalis purpurea 'Alba'

Hardy Biennial

In daylight, Foxglove purpurea 'Alba' is understated, leaving centre stage to showier perennials - but as dusk descends the pristine flower spikes catch and reflect the light, seemingly glowing from borders. This upright beauty is a magnet for bees and other pollinators. The elegant blooms also make charming cut flowers adding a vertical accent to summer bouquets. This pure white Digitalis is ideal for adding refined stature to shaded borders and woodland areas. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Although foxgloves prefer a fertile, moist soil, they will happily tolerate almost any soil except those that are excessively dry or waterlogged.
Water foxglove plants regularly until fully established. Foxgloves self-seed freely. If seedlings are not wanted, deadhead stems of foxglove flowers as the blooms fade. In autumn, cut back old stems to encourage plenty of new side shoots.
