Fox gloves

What are your foxgloves Thomas? Did they flower this year?

They are hardy.

I shall have to get some longifolia though

Yes, but they LOOK like grasses.  I still plant them for their "grasslike" form.  As I do for carex, Phormium, liriope.    But I agree we have all digressed from the original question


Don't we always digress Verdun
