Towering spikes of dusky, strawberry-pink blooms rise from neat rosettes of glossy, dark green foliage. Commonly known as the Strawberry Foxglove, this beautiful hybrid combines the bell shaped flowers of D. grandiflora with the pretty colouring of D. purpurea. Foxglove x mertonensis will add plenty of cottage garden charm to the back of borders. Grow it in groups to bring structure and vertical interest to your summer planting schemes. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 30cm (12").

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