(Digitalis grandiflora ‘Dwarf Carillon’)
A classic cottage garden plant. Foxgloves look great in large clumps or in drifts under tall trees.
The lovely, mid sized, yellow flower spikes appear a little later than the normal foxgloves; from late spring to mid summer.
POSITION & USES
Grow in sun or part shade and water adequately in hot weather. Suited to a cottage garden but also useful to add colour to shrubby areas.
Easily grown in any reasonable garden soil. Cut the flowering stem to the ground when flowers are spent. Pet safe, snail baits may be required.
Regular applications of Seasol and Power Feed in spring and summer will keep it looking its best.
