strawberry foxglove

Digitalis × mertonensis

Easily grown in average, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade with consistent moisture. 3′ flower stalks in strawberry shades are showstoppers. This sturdy hybrid is also one of the most perennial foxgloves available. Can be divided in spring or fall every 3-5 years. Cut the flowering spike to the base as it finishes and several smaller spikes will appear, extending the bloom time. Leave new fall growth at the base of the plant to overwinter. Allow self-seeding to ensure future generations.

Leaves and seeds of this plant are toxic if ingested.
