Plant details

This is the first primrose-yellow foxglove to come true from seed. It has the exciting bonus of large, claret-speckled flowers which are borne all around the stem, a unique attribute in foxgloves. The plants are also quite dwarf, only 75cm (30in) high, and they're good in containers, or exposed situations where foxgloves would normally falter. It makes a sensational show planted in drifts in the cottage garden border.
