Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

Parentage from the little-known Isoplexis (Canary Island Foxglove) gives these exciting new Digitalis their fabulous tropical colouring. Being completely sterile Foxglove 'Illumination Duo' won't set seed, making them incredibly long flowering. Unlike most foxgloves which are generally biennial, these hardy semi-evergreen varieties are true perennials so you can enjoy them year after year. The exotic looking blooms are densely packed on sturdy stems, with many side branches, making a striking addition to summer borders. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Flowering Months
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.
Pot up digitalis plants and grow them on in frost free conditions for transplanting outdoors later on. When plants are well-grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before planting them in borders and containers in sun or partial shade. If plants are received in the autumn, pot them up and grow them on in cool, bright, frost-free conditions over winter. Although foxgloves prefer a fertile, moist soil, they will happily tolerate almost any soil except those that are excessively dry or waterlogged.

not worth the price 2016-09-20

I bought this plant in 2014 and it flowered and was fine, it was better last year as it had grown and there were now two stems. This year there were several stems but the size of the flower had become so small as to be totally insignificant. I therefore think it is very expensive for such a short lived plant and would defiinitely not recommend it.
