Missing Fixgloves

United Kingdom Gb

Does any one know where I might obtain seeds or plants of Digitalis grandiflora Dropmore Yellow or Digitalis purpurea Inverewe. Both seem to have disappeared from current lists.



I did check the RHS plantfinder for you and the Dropmore Yellow was last listed some years ago. The other one had no listings at all, I'm afraid. I will check in my myriad seed catalogues tomorrow just in case.

Hallo again Graham. I've looked through Dobies, T&M, Mr Fothergill, Suttons, RHS and Plants of Distinction - only listings are for a number of named varieties of D.purpurea - but not Inverewe, sorry. No grandiflora at all. Sorry I can't help..

The last time the RHS listed them was back in 2003, I did see the names on some obscure German and foreign websites but I couldn't translate it but you may have better luck abroad?

I do not know exactly what digitalis you mean, but I have bought fantastic and original ones from a nursery called Marchants, near Ringmer in Sussex.
