I had a yellow Foxglove lutea in my garden and a self-seed came up in pink and have not been able to find one on any of the sites is this a new variety?

It might be-if it is exactly the same except for the colour-T&M offer £500 for new variety of plants found in gardens-details here

But of course it could be dead common

I've had these from time to time. I've always taken it to be a hybrid with one of the other species.

To find out if it is stable rather than an occasional result of cross-breeding you will have to raise several generations and rogue out any that do not conform until the foxglove breeds true over and over again.  

I hope you are a young person!

That's where it all fell down with me. Sterile hybrid, no seed. Moved house before I split it up so all gone.
