Digiplexis are a cross between a native foxglove and a foxglove native to the Canary Islands. This breeding means the plants flower for a lot longer than a traditional foxglove – for several months instead of weeks in fact! This does also mean they are more tender and will need protecting in the winter. We think their beautiful flowers are more than worth the extra effort, as they are loved by bees and butterflies and are great for adding height and vivid colour to garden borders, or potted on a patio or in an urban garden.
Cultivation Grow in almost any soil,but avoid very wet or very dry situations. Prefers a humus-rich soil in partial shade but will grow in full sun. Deadhead after flowering to avoid problems with excess numbers of seedlings.
