Digitalis Grandiflora 'Dwarf Carillion' | Foxglove
A smaller Foxglove variety sporting abundant racemens of yellow blooms
Shorter than the other Foxglove varieties that you may normally encounter, Digitalis grandiflora 'Dwarf Carillion' is a lovely alternative to the standard Foxglove. Its smaller stature makes it a wonderful addition to borders that are more limited in space, where its abundant, bell-shaped blooms offer a cheerful display of custard yellow! 'Dwarf Carillion' will make a lovely companion to Ferns, where the distinctive foliage will help fill a border with contrasting shapes. Please note, Digitalis is highly toxic.

About your Plant
Our herbaceous plants are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.
Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.
Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our perennials and alpines are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.
Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:
Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.
Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.
