Product Description

An elegant foxglove with flower spikes covered in small chocolate trumpets circling each stem and attracting beneficial insects. Neat dark evergreen foliage with flowers from June to August.

An unusual variety that is sure to attract attention.

Foxgloves are biennials meaning that it requires two years to complete its life-cycle, germinating and growing in its first year, then producing its flowers in its second year, after which it usually dies. However, as it self-seeds freely you will have a ready supply of new plants every year.

Caution: Harmful if eaten.
