Digitalis purpurea 'Dalmation Mix' | 3 x 10.5cm Pots
Evoke a stately feel in your garden's borders with this striking collection...
Forming a low rosette of green leaves, and racemens of elegant, bell-shaped flowers, our stunning Foxglove collection will evoke a stately feel in your garden. This Digitalis mix is perfect if you are unsure on which colour scheme to go for; you can enjoy a mix of shades that harmonise with one another, such as apricot, mauve, and white.
These plants can self-sow, where you can move any seedlings as they appear (but make sure to handle them with gloves). Present from May to July, these Foxgloves are the perfect perennial for marking the onset of summer, and their nectar-rich blooms will attract plenty of wildlife into your garden. With our collection, you will receive three 10.5cm plug plants, in peach, deep mauve, and white. Please note, Digitalis is extremely toxic.

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.
Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
