Foxgloves, I love em. Mine are quite slow getting going this year and I think IO lost quite a few seedlings over the winter. Probably rotted in our horrible clay soil!

Thanx Milky :) I grew all the Foxgloves in My Border from Seed I Collected last Yr Paul :) But Sadly iv lost the Parent Plants :(

Well, strictly speaking Jacque, they should die as they are biennials not perrenials but some plants do seem to continue the next year.

If you can find one called D. x mertonensis, it is perennial anda fantastic crushed strawberry colour, although not as elegant as the wild ones.
They were in my 'local' but were €6.99, so I left them and when I relented a few days later ........ yes, they were gone.

Looks lovely Jacque.

I have a perrenial Digitalis(Lutea) Jacque/VincentD, but the flowers are tiny and nothing like the spectacle of the biennials. Also, they are particularly rampant spreaders and will swamp other plants if given the opportunity. I nearly lost my lovely red/leaved Penstemon a couple of years ago but rescued it just in time before it was completely smothered!

Very nice Jacque.

Thanx Clarice This Border is only a Year Old :)

The other trick to keep Digitalis for a few years is to pinch the flowers off 1 or 2 stems and they may keep the plant going. Worth it if you find a really good form.
