Digitalis Purpurea 'Dalmatian White' | Foxglove
A compact foxglove featuring pure white flowers with purple speckled throats
Digitalis 'Dalmatian White' sports racemens of bell-shaped flowers, that gracefully nod from their upright stems. Each flower is of an elegant white shade, and will emerge from a bed of ovate-shaped foliage in summer, with each bloom flowering in order of the lowest to highest. As such, this forms a consistently angular silhouette that is slightly varied in colour as not every flower will be the same! 'Dalmatian White' will hence look beautifully placed within the back of a cottage garden's border, presenting both stunning structure and a long-lasting, soft-hued display. Please note, Digitalis is highly toxic.

About your PlantOur 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.
PackagingSustainability 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.Click Here To Read More
