Description
Commonly known as the Sunset Foxglove for its beautiful ‘evening-sky’ colours. Digitalis obscura is rarely seen in gardens, but you’ve the chance to admire its beautiful russet shades in your own summer borders. The flower spikes are shorter and less ostentatious than many of today’s showy varieties, giving this lovely species Foxglove an elegant, yet understated presence. This charming perennial blends effortlessly with woodland and cottage garden planting schemes, seeding readily to form clusters of pretty Foxgloves flowers year after year. Height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

How to Grow
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. Although foxgloves prefer a fertile, moist soil, they will happily tolerate almost any soil except those that are excessively dry or waterlogged.
More Info
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.
